Each year the Association of California Water Agencies Joint Powers Insurance Authority, recognizes its members who have low claims on their insurance policies. Helix Water District was able achieve this low level of losses through its policies, procedures and programs aimed at reducing risks associated with purveying water. These include preventing construction related losses, administering fair employment practices, preventing workplace injuries, operating vehicles safely, and responding to emergencies efficiently.

 “The policies set in place by the district’s Board of Directors and the commitment of staff to work safely and reduce risks, prevents workplace accidents and damage and reduces our insurance costs. Like a good driver discount, these actions keep our insurance costs low, which ultimately benefits our customers.” said Kevin Miller, Helix’s Director of Operations.
