Blue-Ribbon Panel: Coronavirus Risks Low for Wastewater Workers

  • 14 August 2020
  • ckearns

A panel of wastewater and public health experts has determined that occupational risk of COVID-19 infection for wastewater workers is low. The panel also found that standard wastewater treatment processes inactivate the virus and additional research should be conducted to further increase understanding of hazards and protections for personnel.

NYRWA non-emergency calls resume

Today our water and wastewater field staff will begin answering non-emergency calls.  If you need assistance please call our office or contact our field staff directly.

This month we will also return to classroom training.  It will be a slow process, and attendance will be limited, so we ask for your patience and understanding.  We will continue with a limited number of free webinars to help our membership attain their recertification hours.

More to come soon.

Thank You From NYRWA

WOW!  We are amazed and extremely grateful for the outpouring of support for our newly developed webinar style recertification training.  Once again, our members showed their understanding and support for new activities undertaken by the Board and Staff here at NYRWA.  Our thanks also go out to our Associate Members who have stepped up to provide the training.  Sincerely, we cannot thank you enough.
