CLOTH MASK DISTRIBUTION

Attention Water & Wastewater System Personnel:

South Dakota Association of Rural Water Systems (SDARWS) and Water and Wastewater Agency Response Network (SDWARN) has worked with EPA and FEMA to secure a limited supply of cloth facemasks for water sector personnel. SDWARN is partnering with SDARWS to help distribute these cloth facemasks. Because supplies are limited, systems can request a maximum of two masks per utility personnel. Masks will be distributed based on need and prioritized in counties most impacted by COVID-19.

 

About the cloth facemasks:

  • Single size (one size fits all)
  • Fabric touching skin is 100% cotton
  • The cloth masks are reusable and machine washable up to 15 times
  • NOT for use with chemicals or in hazardous environments where N95 or other respirators are required
  • If you are in need of masks for utility personnel, please scroll down and fill out the online request form, and we will get you on the list to receive these essential supplies.

 

You will be asked to provide basic information about you and your water system such as your PWSID or NPDES Permit number and the number of FTE at your system. This is to verify that you are a South Dakota water or wastewater agency.

 

Some key points of the program are:

Cloth masks are being made available to all water and wastewater agency employees in South Dakota.

The cloth masks are for all public water and wastewater system employees; masks are not exclusive to field workers and operators.

 

Identify the number of cloth facemask requested – current limit of two cloth facemasks per water or wastewater agency employee.

 

Once approved, you will receive an email to confirm the number of cloth masks you will receive and confirmation of arrangements made for pick-up or delivery of the facemasks.

You do not need to be a member of SDWARN in order to receive masks, however, if you’re not a member, we strongly encourage you to join. More information can be found on SDWARN’s website by going to www.sdwarn.org.

 

Sincerely,

 

Brad Lawrence – Chairman, SDWARN

Kurt Pfeifle – Executive Director, SDARWS

Mark Mayer – Administrator, SDDENR Drinking Water Program
