TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Red Bluff's water pressure is low because of the PG&E power outages. 

The city has been relying on generators to power its water system. 

Red Bluff's city manager, Rick Crabtree, says only half of the city's water pumps are in use at this point. 

Crabtree doesn't believe that citizens using the water will notice too much of a major difference on their side. 

During power shutoffs, the water should remain safe to drink. 

To help with the situation, Red Bluff Fire Chief Ray Barber expressed a similar sentiment, but also still wants people living in Red Bluff to be careful.

"If we are using large amounts of water from the system, then we would ask people to conserve," said Chief Barber. 

During this time Crabtree recommends that people should avoid watering their landscape or washing their cars.
