Regarding COVID-19 and the city’s water and wastewater operations, the coronavirus has no impact on the quality or supply of your tap water. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies. Based on current evidence, the risk to water supplies is low and Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual. As required for all municipal water systems, the treatment processes used at the Water Treatment Facility removes or destroys 99.99-percent of all viruses.
