Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
March 16, 2020
The CDC and EPA have both informed nationwide water systems that this virus (as well as other similar virus's) cannot live in chlorinated water. Our water is treated with Azone 15, a liquid sodium hypochlorite that has a pH of 11. It is very similiar to regular bleach used in your laundryroom. Our treated water goes thru a racetrack of piping to insure proper chlorine contact time before entering the distribution system. This treatment will eliminate 99.999 percent of the COVID-19 pathogens that might be in the water.
The most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to wash your hands properly frequently, eliminate close contact (hand shaking, etc.), cough into a tissue and throw the tissue in the garbage, then wash your hands and use common sense. There is no need to panic.
The health and safety of our customers and employees is a top priority of the Board and management. Below are a list of resources where you can find factual information on Coronavirus causes and prevention measures.
