Emergency drinking water distributed in south Santa Barbara County


Emergency drinking water is being distributed in three different locations in south Santa Barbara County in response to the recent mudslides. Distribution will take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day until further notice.

The distribution sites include the:

• Shopping center at the southwest corner of East Valley Road and San Ysidro Road in Upper Village.

• Montecito Fire Station at Cold Spring and Sycamore Canyon Road.

• Summerland Post Office at 2245 Lillie Ave.

Extensive damage has been done to Montecito’s water supply infrastructure and a boil water notice is still in effect for Montecito water district customers. Water in Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and all other communities is safe by state and federal standards.
