So is this for the people affected by the water outage, but not within the mandatory evacuation area?

I have been told by a Montecito official that the water will be shut off for months, including the unaffected areas nearest Santa Barbara. Has anyone else heard this?

I don't have anything specific... What i can share is we had a main burst on our block and it took the city over 3 days to declare it safe to drink after an over 2 day repair process. If the damage is as widespread as it sounds I would imagine that it will be a series of these operations that take a lot of time to repair and even more to test. I would also guess the officials don't really know for sure. Months does not sound out of the question though.
