We all know Los Angeles looks pretty different this week.

I want to reassure you that we're doing all we can to protect you, your family, and everyone who drinks our water.

We'll be reviewing all our procedures, and coming up with new initiatives to ensure you can continue to work safely and efficiently.

There's no time to rest when it comes to clean drinking water! Millions across this city rely on us for this precious resource each and every day, and we have to continue to honor this duty.

I know I can count on you to show up for work, ready to give it your all, now more than ever.
