EPA hosted a webinar on September 30, 2020 on the Water Utilities Financial Impact Tool and the 2020 COVID-19 Water Sector Survey. The webinar included a live demonstration of the tool and a discussion on the survey. The tool leads water utilities through questions that can determine how their revenues, expenses, and cashflow have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey intends to assess the challenges and needs faced by the water sector during the COVID-19 pandemic to determine if they have sufficient resources to continue their operations and provide safe drinking water and wastewater treatment during the COVID-19 national emergency.
