Water and Wastewater Services Reliable 24/7

Mutual Aid During Pandemic

Post Date:04/23/2020

Process Lead Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator V Virgil Sevilla controls the SCADA computer system.The current pandemic reminds us that our critical systems and infrastructure need to be resilient and designed for emergencies. Preparedness for water and wastewater utilities typically means being ready for drought, earthquakes, and Public Safety Power Shutoffs due to wildfires. To maintain 24/7 reliability, the District is part of Cal-WARN, the California Water Agency Response Network, which allows water agencies to borrow workers from other agencies in an emergency. Since the pandemic, in the Tri-Valley the City of Pleasanton, City of Livermore, Zone 7 Water Agency, and DSRSD agreed to provide qualified and certified staff to assist with short-term, critical system operation and maintenance. These critical systems include water treatment, distribution, water testing, wastewater collection, and technical support for computerized monitoring and control systems.
