Juniper Beach Water District (JBWD) is a Washington municipal corporation lawfully formed and existing under Title 57 RCW. The Juniper Beach Water District’s primary function is to provide safe and reliable drinking water to the public which is essential to public health and safety. Governor Inslee’s Proclamation No. 20-23 issued on March 18, 2020 recognizes that Title 57 water-sewer districts are essential service providers.

JBWD contracts with King Water Company to manage and operate the assets recognized by state and federal officials as critical infrastructure essential to the State of Washington. These assets support community safety, security, economy, and resilience, at all times and especially during the COVID-19 response.

JBWD has determined that all employees of King Water Company are identified as employees performing functions or duties for the District that are necessary for the District to provide essential water services to the public.

The purpose of this announcement is to document that King Water Company’s employees are critical to JBWD’s ability to provide essential services to the public. As a result, you may see employees out in the public working in connection with the performance of their job duties so the JBWD can continue providing these essential services to the public.
