How Has COVID-19 Impacted the Water Sector?
Date: Wednesday, August 19th from 10:00am-11:30am
Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has vastly changed our way of life, especially as it relates to water. Rate payers across California have struggled to keep up with their water bills, sparking a statewide utility-shutoff moratorium. At some water facilities, engineers are quarantining on site 24/7 to keep water flowing while maintaining their individual health and safety. All over the state, water infrastructure projects and conservation efforts have had to be paused or cancelled altogether as water districts face shrinking budgets. In this upcoming WELL Webinar, we invite expert panelists to examine what these various impacts are and what lasting effects they may have on the water sector overall.
Moderator: Patty Cortez, Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District
Speakers: Enrique Zaldivar, LA Sanitation & Environment; Gracie Torres, Western Municipal Water District; Martin Adams, LADWP
