Announcement: Excessive Heat Warning: July 24 – July 26, 2018

Southern California is under an excessive heat warning until this Thursday night, with temperatures for Pala forecast into the 100s. During heat waves, limit your activities and avoid going outdoors. Drink plenty of non-alcoholic, caffeine-free fluids (water is best). Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. If you don’t have air conditioning,  you can go to one of Pala’s two cool zones at the Pala Fitness Center or the Pala Fire Department. Make sure to check in on vulnerable populations, especially young children, the disabled, and the elderly, and get them to cool zones if necessary. Know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke and how to treat them. The guide below explains the symptoms and treatments for both. Heat stroke is a life-threatening emergency, so if you suspect you or someone else is succumbing to the heat, don’t take any chances – CALL 911!

Periods of excessive heat are becoming more common as our climate changes. Be prepared, don’t take unnecessary risks, check on others, and stay safe!

Pala’s Annual Water Quality Report

Every year, all public waters supply systems must develop and send out a CCR (Consumer Confidence Report), which describes the water quality of their system’s tap water. This report must be delivered by June 30th of each year. The report covers Pala’s drinking (tap) water quality from January 1st, 2017 to December 31st, 2017. We had no violations last year, as you can see from the chart on pages 4 through 7. Click here to access the report. You can also find it in the Documents section of the Pala website.

Also, if you live outside of Pala, look for your own CCR’s either in your water billing statements or on your water district’s website (see below for maps of other local water districts in case you are unsure of the district you live in). If anyone wants help finding/reading the results of their own water district, feel free to come by the Pala Environmental Department office in the Administration Building and we will be glad to help you find and read your own CCR.

If you have any questions about Pala’s water quality, please feel free to call or email our water quality specialist, Heidi Brow, at 760-891-3514 or hbrow@palatribe.com.
