Seasonal Catchbasin Program Continues

Our seasonal catch basin program has been up and running since mid-April. Our first seasonal employee started on April 20th. Currently we have six seasonal catch basin drivers working from East Palo Alto to Daly City. On an average day, one driver can treat anywhere between 400 and 800 catch basins. Basins are treated with BVA-2, a material similar to mineral oil which coats the surface of the water and prevents mosquito larvae in the water from breathing. The material dissipates after a few days. In May, our staff sprayed 37,821 catch basins.

Staff Adapt to Coronavirus Safety Precautions

District staff has been doing a great job adapting to the ever-changing coronavirus guidelines. Currently our vector control technicians are showing up to work with a fresh uniform on each day, getting in their work trucks at 8 am, and heading out to the field. We have a staff meeting online twice a week using the Microsoft Teams app to help coordinate work for the week. This has been a great feature because gives us the ability to connect with all of our staff at one time in a virtual meeting room.
