West Basin Programs Postponed Until Further Notice

West Basin Municipal Water District Update on COVID-19

Effective March 16, the West Basin Municipal Water District is postponing District events and community programs until further notice in order to help protect the community from the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The West Basin Board of Directors voted to proceed with caution and implement protective strategies across all District operations. Precautionary measures include offering online and virtual public education programs in place of in-person events, suspending non-essential travel, exploring telecommuting for staff and maintaining a healthful work environment.

 “In order to protect public health and prevent the potential for further community transmission of COVID-19 that can occur through public events, West Basin is taking the action of postponing its scheduled public tours, school education classes, and community outreach events until further notice,” said West Basin Board President Gloria D. Gray. “The decision to provide alternatives for our outreach events was made with the greater public interest in mind as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve daily and impact our region,” added Gray.

In addition to the actions taken by the Board to prevent the spread of the virus, the District is also assuring the communities in its service area that COVID-19 has no impact on the quality or supply of the District’s drinking water.

“We understand and share your concerns regarding the health impacts of COVID-19, but we want to assure our communities that the drinking water delivered by West Basin is safe and reliable,” stated President Gray.

West Basin will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, following established public health agency guidelines and recommendations and adjusting its programming and operations as needed. All updates regarding West Basin programs and operations will be posted on the District website (www.westbasin.org) and other outreach platforms.
