On March 23, 2022, Sweetwater Authority (Authority) received a refund check of $211,954 from the Association of California Water Agencies-Joint Powers Insurance Authority (JPIA).
“The Governing Board is so proud of staff for their hard work and commitment to safety. We appreciate their efforts and the positive impacts that these sorts of refunds have on our budget,” said Chair Alejandra Sotelo-Solis.
Through risk sharing pools, the JPIA provides the Authority with liability, property, and worker’s compensation insurance. By adopting good risk management practices, and implementing a comprehensive suite of safe work procedures, claims are minimized and savings are achieved. Those savings are then passed on to the JPIA member agencies.
