Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Latest Updates as of April 1, 2020


Per recommendations from the State of California and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the West Valley Clean Water Authority office is temporarily closed to help minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Though our office is closed, staff continues to work remotely. We have suspended regular business inspections, but we will respond as necessary to illegal discharges into the storm drain (IDDEs). While the current pandemic requires us to adjust projects and services like community events, school presentations, and inspections, our main goal is to continue to serve our community.

WVCWA services impacted due to coronavirus: 

  • Routine business stormwater inspections are not being conducted at this time. When inspections resume, facilities will be prioritized using criteria such as past facility compliance.
  • The Authority may have a more limited ability to respond to spills and complaints due to reduced numbers of essential staff. Incidents may have to be prioritized to disburse limited essential personnel.
  • Outreach events and school presentations are on hold at this time due to school closures and event cancellations.
  • Monitoring activities may be impacted due to inability of contractor staff to complete monitoring and studies that depend upon availability of field personnel and their ability to conduct field activities safely.

We thank the community for their efforts to keep safe and stay home. Through such measures that we’re all taking, we hope that this pandemic is short lived.
