COVID-19 Assistance Surveys

Massachusetts water and wastewater utilities have been informed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency of a planned federal distribution of up to 30,000 reusable cloth (non-N95) masks to Massachusetts water and wastewater utilities. Delivery to several facilities throughout Massachusetts could occur as early as next week. Other facilities and contract operators would pick up masks from those locations.

To help us determine the number of masks that would be allocated to each facility or contract operating firm, please have a representative of your facility or contract operating firm fill out this survey as soon as possible:

We will follow up with more information when it becomes available.


Calling all drinking water and wastewater operators who are willing to assist other facilities! Please fill out this survey:
