PSA 3.24.2020Public Service Announcement from NEW Water:

During this COVID-19 outbreak, we at NEW Water remain committed to health and safety as our most important value, as we continue to serve the community around the clock.

We continue to monitor and follow guidelines from health officials and are also making provisions within our organization to address health and safety of our staff, to do our part to mitigate the outbreak, as well as ensure continuity of service.

All tours and non-essential visits to our facilities have been suspended.

Our Commission meeting schedule remains, though meetings will be held as teleconference. For those wishing to participate, please contact us and we will make provisions.

Also please note, given the toilet paper shortages being reported, people may tend to flush paper towels, facial tissue, and wipes at this time. We have created a new Public Service Announcement with a graphic depiction, in order to try to grab people’s attention: Please ONLY flush the “3Ps” (#1, #2, and toilet paper) in order to help prevent backups and keep the sanitary sewer systems in your homes, and throughout our community, flowing.

From our NEW Water family to yours, we are sending best wishes to you and your communities at this trying time. #StayHealthyBC
