Updated July 20, 2020

ACUA is closely monitoring the COVID-19 guidance from state and federal health authorities. The operations of the Authority – wastewater treatment and safely collecting and disposing of solid waste – are essential to the public health of our community and will continue.

The primary concern of the Authority is the safety of our employees and our customers. ACUA is enacting various measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

At this time, all residential and commercial collection routes will be performed as scheduled. We will notify the public and our customers if anything changes.
