Public Outreach Vision Statement - Adopted May 9, 2017
The NTPUD is a transparent, trusted organization who serves an informed, engaged and supportive public who knows:
- Who the District is, and who we aren’t
- What we do, and what we don’t do for the north Tahoe resident and visitor
- Where their money is going/coming
- Understands how they can contribute to the District’s success
How Do We Communicate with our Residents?
As a local government agency providing sewer, water and parks services to the residents of North Lake Tahoe, we want to communicate with our residents and get information out to them. We want our residents to know the amenities and benefits available to them and for our residents to know where to go in order to get accurate information in an emergency. Below are the various tools available for you to keep up on the activities of the North Tahoe Public Utility District. We want to let you know what's going on, but communication also requires some participation from you! Please engage with us!

The District calendar is shared across all three websites. No matter which one you click on, you will receive the same information. This calendar includes days the District offices are closed and dates of Board of Director and Recreation and Parks Commission meetings. The District also strives to keep the public informed on the events and activities taking place at our facilities via this resource.
In early 2016 the District began video recording our Board meetings and posting them on the website for viewing by those who are interested, yet unable to attend the meetings. The video is integrated with the agenda, so viewers can click on the item they are interested and be taken directly to that point in the video.

We STRONGLY encourage all of our residents to make sure to read these newsletters when they arrive.
In the event of any kind of emergency within the District, or a large incident in the region, the District is committed to ensuring you receive timely and correct information. The rise of social media has also meant an easy way to for incorrect information and rumors to be spread quickly. In the event of an emergency, please make sure you are getting information directly from those providing services such as those listed below.
Most importantly, please make sure you are subscribed to the Placer County WARN system. This system allows emergency notifications (email, text, call) to be sent out specific to the address or addresses that you request. https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085611271#/login
Social media will provide the ability to release of information in the most timely manner and is most easily spread to interested parties. The Facebook accounts for our Regional Emergency Response Partners are listed below. Additional information will continue to be added.
