Risk Control Manager


The ACWA JPIA (JPIA) is a public entity formed in 1979 by the water agencies of the state of California. It provides risk-sharing pools to meet the needs of its members for property, liability, workers' compensation, and employee benefits coverage. It is a partnership of water agencies working together to share the risks associated with purveying water. The risk-sharing pools of the JPIA are a cost-effective form of risk management available only to public entities, allowing them to bypass the high cost of commercial insurance. The coverages provided by this risk-sharing arrangement are unique to water agencies; the water agencies themselves--their directors and managers--have selected and refined these coverages. Not all water agencies are accepted in to the JPIA. Prospective members must demonstrate a commitment to effective risk management programs.
