Denver Water’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic includes
increasing the distance between employees by having all staff
who can work remotely, work from their homes or other loca-tions,
and requiring social distancing among employees who
still need to report to a facility or job site.
The agencies said they continue to monitor the situation
around the coronavirus nationwide but stated that impacts at
Denver Water are likely to be mitigated by a strong financial
situation and “a strong, forward-looking management team.”
“Doing a bond issue is a team effort, and the success rests on
the work of so many people across Denver Water who do their
jobs so well, and that extends to our customers as well. We all
work together,” Sharma said.
Cathy Proctor joined the Denver Water TAP team
as a writer and editor in 2018. But she’s very famil-iar
with the organization and its role in the history
of Denver and Colorado from her years covering
Denver Water as part of her beat at the Denver
Business Journal, where she covered the people and issues that
make up in the business side of the state’s energy, transportation,
and natural resources sectors.
