This has become a priority as good hygiene, such as frequent washing of hands, is critical in overcoming (COVID-19).

According to a press release, Kim Inniss, manager recoveries, BWA, is leading the operation to reconnect customers.

“The remaining 2522 accounts constituted properties that the BWA received a request to disconnect the water service of vacant properties, seasonal occupancies or for the investigation of major leaks,” the statement said.
