Governor Guidance on the Water Sector During COVID-19

This memo highlights several important issues for governors to consider to help states maintain uninterrupted water and wastewater service to protect human health during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. NGA has been in conversation with states and several water sector associations to collect much of this information. The appendices include a collection of resources and guidance from water industry associations, organizations, and federal agencies pertinent to the water sector during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

All NGA COVID-19 memos can be found here, or visit COVID-19: What You Need To Know for current information on actions States/Territories are taking to address the COVID-19 pandemic; as well as advocacy, policy, and guidance documents for protecting public health and the economy.
