I can't answer for your utility, but give them a call. You didn't list the utility name in your post so I can't easily look it up on the web.

I'd bet, though, that they'll say they're ready. The Detroit water & sewer utility has been saying that around here, but are now running radio ads with the "ready for a three day winter storm" warning. Oh yes, they say to have water on hand, too.

Give yours a call and post their answer...

Maybe I'm just a skeptic, but I see no point in asking them. What would you expect them to say,,,,,"sorry. we screwed up and there's no way we're ready. You'll have to pee in your backyard and drink rainwater". Not likely. Just prepare as if they aren't ready.
