Drinking water and COVID-19: Your water is safe!

Just as always, EMD Water Department's first priority is keeping your drinking water clean and safe. The coronavirus as well as other viruses are eliminated from treated drinking water through standard treatment and disinfection techniques.

Furthermore, per the CDC: “presence of the COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies and based on current evidence the risk to water supplies is low.”
