6 months ago
The Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) wants residents to know that their public water supply is safe. In the case of quarantine or outbreak related to the coronavirus, public drinking water systems are designed to continuously deliver safe drinking water to your tap.
"Drinking water treatment and disinfection has effectively protected Utah's population for many decades. These protections will safeguard residents against drinking-water-borne viral infections--including coronavirus," says Marie Owens, Director of DEQ's Division of Drinking Water. "There is no need for residents to stock up on surplus bottled water in preparation for a potential outbreak of coronavirus."
