If a drinking water emergency strikes your town, be prepared for a phone call from the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority’s emergency notification system. This system, called CodeRED, allows us to quickly reach town residents using telephone communication.
CodeRED allows RWA officials to deliver a prerecorded, tailored message, to either an entire community or a select portion of a city, advising residents about special precautions to take during a drinking water emergency.
The CodeRED telephone databases are the listings that are in the local printed telephone directories. We encourage our customers to register cell phones or unlisted phone numbers to be notified in case of a water emergency.
Even if you live in a community that already uses CodeRED, the RWA encourages all customers to enroll.
Register your name, address and phones number(s) to make sure you are not left off the drinking water emergency list. All numbers will remain confidential and will be used only to communicate drinking water emergency information.
