IEWorks is dedicated to strengthening the water/wastewater workforce in the Inland Empire. With substantial funding from the US Department of Education and the CA High Road Training Partnership, IEWorks partners with Bay Area-based JVS and BAYWORK to leverage their success and best practices.
What is IEWorks?
The operational reliability of water and wastewater utilities depends on having both sufficient staffing in mission critical classifications and staff who are sufficiently prepared to do the work. The result is BAYWORK which was established in 2009. IEWorks is an expansion of BAYWORK and looks to recreate simliar conceptual framework in the Inland Empire.
When did IEWorks start?
IEWorks began development in late 2020 and is in the process of becoming a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Who are the members of IEWorks?
West Valley Water District and Western Muncipal Water District are the two agencies which helped found IEWorks. As a result, San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District, Inland Empire Utilities Agency, and Rancho Water have since joined the founding agencies. For an updated list, visit Signatory Agencies.
