Our country is passing the one-year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic and many states and communities are beginning to ease restrictions and reopen as case numbers decline. The State of California plans to reopen activities and businesses on June 15 if criteria for vaccine access/distribution and hospitalization rates are met. Details of the plan are available here.
West County Wastewater remains committed to providing safe, reliable wastewater service – today and always. We are grateful for our team of dedicated employees that works tirelessly to ensure such an essential service is not interrupted.
At WCW, we continue to make the safety of our employees and the community our highest priority. At the start of the pandemic, we quickly pivoted our operations to ensure we continued to meet our customers’ needs while putting safety procedures in place to protect our team and the public.
West County Wastewater will maintain these safety measures for the foreseeable future. COVID-19 and its variants remain active, and WCW will continue to comply with all orders issued by California and the Contra Costa County Health Officer. We will make decisions that ensure the safety of our staff and community while providing uninterrupted services.
Many of our employees are still working remotely, including our customer service team. For those working in the field or on-site, we continue to require physical distancing, face coverings, handwashing, and other protocols. Phone calls to our offices are being monitored, but response may not be immediate except for emergencies. To report an emergency, call (510) 222-6700, option 1. Crews are available to respond 24 hours a day, seven days week.
Our Board of Directors and other public meetings are taking place via teleconference. Additional details can be found below.
