TABLE OF CONTENTS EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND USER GUIDE

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND USER GUIDE Water and wastewater services are essential to deliver clean drinking water and ensure safe waterways during the response to the Coronavirus. Water utilities are committed to providing these services, even as the Coronavirus has direct impacts on operations, staffing and finances. Utilities must ensure these essential services are delivered, while protecting the people who make it happen, as well as the facilities, equipment and of course, the customer.

Moonshot Missions, a non-profit organization founded by George Hawkins, the former General Manager of DC Water in Washington DC, has put together a compendium of best practices being implemented by water utilities in the face of this unprecedented challenge.

Moonshot staff has compiled this checklist by reviewing resources from water associations, list-serves and dozens of utility response and continuity of operations plans. We plan for this to be a “living document” that evolves as new practices are implemented.
