[ARCHIVED] MVWD's Public Water Supply Safe from Coronavirus

Image of coronavirus strain

The COVID-19 virus (also known as the coronavirus) is a virus passed from person to person, through close contact similar to how the flu is spread. There is no evidence that the virus has been detected in drinking water nor that it can survive in water. MVWD uses conventional water treatment methods that include filtration and disinfection to ensure customers receive safe, reliable and high quality water. The District uses multiple steps in the treatment process that physically removes, disinfects and chemically inactivates viruses, bacteria and other living organisms from your drinking water.
