YOUR TAP WATER IS SAFE TO DRINK!
“The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking water.
Conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in most municipal drinking water systems, should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
The novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, does NOT impact the quality and supply of your local tap water. COVID-19 is transmitted person to person, not through water, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Tap water is regulated for safety by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and must meet stringent state and federal drinking water quality standards.
Kinneloa Irrigation District provides a water supply that meets and exceeds drinking water standards set by the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974.
Don’t tap into your emergency preparedness supply. Water supplies are not threatened by the pandemic. A two-week supply of bottled water is recommended for other emergencies, such as earthquakes.
“Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual.”
