  • One Water Alexandria – Helping Alexandrians Know Their H2O

    May 13, 2020
    The residents of Alexandria, Virginia sometimes confuse the three water entities that service the city: Virginia American Water (VAW), which provides drinking water; the City of Alexandria, which owns the sanitary sewer system and stormwater infrastructure; and Alexandria Renew Enterprises (AlexRenew), which owns the water resource recovery facility, interceptors, pump stations, and four combined sewer outfalls. In 2018, the One Water Alexandria partnership was established to provide education and outreach to the community and lessen confusion among shared water customers. The eight-person team, which represents the three water entities and RiverRenew (an AlexRenew program to address combined sewer overflows), developed a multi-phased plan to get Alexandrians to know their H2O.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced water communicators to confront unthinkable challenges, as well as providing unexpected opportunities to engage with ratepayers. Join us for Day 1 as we host a panel of experts to examine the crisis communications strategies deployed at the onset of the pandemic and the social media strategies used to engage with ratepayers in creative and novel ways. On Day 2, we’ll be reviewing the internal communications plans that have allowed workforces to operate remotely, then we’ll look to the future and discuss what a post-coronavirus future looks like for our communications departments.
