National Federation of Group Water Schemes advice to Group Water Scheme Boards and Management during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Government announced further restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 last Friday the 27th of March 2020. Clearly, water services - including those provided by the GWS sector - are recognised as essential services that should continue to operate fully at this time. Water services are essential to preventing the spread of COVID-19, as are the associated services required to keep treatment plants and distribution networks operational. Therefore, these services are not restricted. If any scheme is experiencing difficulties in terms or supply chains, contractors or other, please contact your NFGWS Development Officer immediately.
