Following the Board’s announcement that all Los Angeles County facilities will be closed to members of the public beginning Monday, March 16, Public Works closed all public buildings and in-person services and cancelled all currently calendared in-person workshops, community meetings, trainings, and other outreach activities. These events have been rescheduled as webinars, conference calls, and remote/virtual engagement as appropriate and possible.
The District continues to adjust to these unprecedented circumstances that all of us are facing together and remains committed to actively take measures to serve the public in a safe and responsible manner. During this time, we are working diligently to prepare and utilize new resources to implement numerous Safe, Clean Water Program components. We want to sincerely thank you for your continued support and involvement in this Program.
