The new coronavirus disease, COVID-19, does not present a threat to the safety of your drinking water. COVID-19 is transmitted person-to-person, not through water, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
CVWD delivers naturally filtered groundwater to its customers from deep-water wells installed (drilled) in local aquifers. Chlorine used to kill viruses, including coronaviruses, as well as bacteria and other pathogens is added to your tap water as a precautionary disinfectant.
CVWD’s staff continuously monitors the public water systems and they collect samples that are tested in CVWD’s state-certified laboratory to ensure tap water meets or surpasses all state and federal drinking water regulations.
