Valley District Will Continue to Deliver Supplemental Water Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

On March 5, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a State of Emergency as part of California's response to address the global outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In response to this, the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District has been working behind-the-scenes to ensure there will be no interruption in service to the water retailers, cities, and mutual water companies who depend on us for a supplemental water supply.

At this time, Valley District does not anticipate a disruption in service or delivery of water to our retailers. The general public is encouraged to stay vigilant in order to remain healthy. Routine practices such as washing your hands for 20 seconds, covering your cough or sneeze, not shaking hands, and staying home if you think you are sick can help you, and those around you, remain healthy.

Valley District relies on our employees to provide a reliable water supply through wholesale water deliveries to 14 retailers and cities throughout our 325 square mile service area. Precautionary measures are being taken internally to ensure ongoing operations of the District throughout our facilities and our Administrative office. Thanks to the capabilities of today's technology, employees are able to work remotely if the District offices need to be closed. This enables the District to continue functioning, while at the same time ensuring the health and safety of our employees, their families, and the community.

At this time, the District is open for business, however, we encourage all non-essential visitors to call-ahead and/or conduct business over the phone, via email, teleconferencing and videoconferencing.

For more information, please call 909-387-9200 or email kristeenf@sbvmwd.com.
