ADWR creates new, informational “Continuing Operations” web page

PHOENIX – Like virtually all other government agencies, the Arizona Department of Water Resources has adjusted to the threats posed by the COVID-19 virus while, at the same time, conducting as many public services and core mission functions as
possible.

ADWR is prepared for eventualities such as this one. The Department is well-
positioned to conduct services remotely, with staff working outside the office in
many cases. In the meanwhile, ADWR’s vital mission work of protecting Arizona’s water supplies – while also minimizing exposure risk to staff and customers – remains our top priority.

As part of the Department’s continuing-operations effort, ADWR has created a
new web page – accessible at new.azwater.gov/covid-19 – that will provide updates regarding Department operations in the weeks to come.

The webpage will include up-to-date changes in ADWR operations, as well as links to informational COVID-19 websites, such as the Environmental Protection
Agency’s statement regarding the safety of drinking water.
