He said that RWRD is 77 percent fully vaccinated and that he expects the number to increase over the coming weeks as employees receive their second doses. He also invited all the committee members to the Oct. 21 ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Biogas project at Tres Ríos WRF. RWRAC

Deputy Director Jaime Rivera gave a special presentation reviewing what the Conveyance division has been working on for the past year. He explained some of the software updates that the division has done to improve efficiency, including the new online customer portal https://sewerservicerequest.pima.gov, which went live in August. Rivera also provided a review of the department’s fiscal year, as well as updates on several of its other programs.
