COVID-19

information for the public:  

For those concerned about potential contamination of tap water by coronavirus, please refer to the following information provided by the US EPA and the CDC:  

Coronavirus and Drinking Water and Wastewater

 "EPA recommends that Americans continue to use and drink tap water as usual. The World Health Organization (WHO)EXIT has stated that the, 'pesence 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.'  Additionally, according to the CDC, COVID-19 is mainly thought to spread between people who are in close contact with one another. Read more from the CDC about transmission of COVID-19. Further, EPA’s drinking water regulations require treatment at public water systems to remove or kill pathogens, including viruses."

information for water utilities:

MWWA knows that water systems are concerned about potential revenue impacts due to the on-going pandemic.  MWWA convened a workgroup and we have produced a guide to help systems think about what information they should be tracking.  You can download the guide here:  MWWA Guide to Documenting Revenue impacts due to COVID-19 FINAL 6-11-20.pdf

We have more resources (such as examples of customer and employee communication, standard operating procedures) available to our members at our COVID-19 page

mwwa response actions: 

Given the ongoing pandemic, MWWA has suspended in person training.  We do understand this creates a hardship for those trying to pursue their licenses, but we feel it is in the best interest of keeping our water works employees healthy and safe.  We will continue to evaluate the situation and the guidance provided by the state.  In the meantime, we will provide training opportunities in a virtual format, click here for the updated list of courses.
