A new toolkit from the Water Environment Federation (WEF) aims to raise public awareness about the vital role that water utilities and workers play in the global response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Along with many critical professionals, water workers provide the foundation for the global response to coronavirus while maintaining the uninterrupted services we need for a functioning society,” said Jackie Jarrell, president of WEF. “Their work is often behind the scenes and largely unseen to the public so we want to make sure they are recognized along with other frontline workers.”
During the coronavirus pandemic, water professionals are continuing to provide essential services that are critical to help communities minimize the spread of the virus and flatten the curve. Water professionals are also supporting medical professionals to provide care, conduct research, and develop treatments.
The toolkit, which is available here, features a series of graphics that are designed for social media and can also be used on the web and in email.
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is a non-profit association that provides technical education and training for thousands of water quality professionals who clean water and return it safely to the environment. WEF members have proudly protected public health, served their local communities, and supported clean water worldwide since 1928.
