COVID-19 & Drinking Water

  • Your water is safe to drink.

 

Your water is safe to drink and available.

The Consortium’s 24 water provider members are committed to providing safe and reliable drinking water to their customers every day, and this remains true during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Here in Oregon, water providers are required to meet the Environmental Protection Agency and the Oregon Health Authority treatment and water quality requirements. The treatment processes used  kill bacteria and viruses such as COVID-19. Find out more from the EPA and the CDC about COVID-19 and drinking water. 

 

Stay in touch with your water provider.

Water is a key element to staying healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact your water provider if you are facing challenges paying your water bill - they may be able to connect you with financial assistance resources.

 

Saving water saves money. 

Find out how you can use water more efficiently at home and in the garden. More efficient water use will lead to savings on your upcoming water bill. 

 

We are in this together. 

Water is an essential service and our staff are essential too. Water providers are taking precautions to keep their work force safe and healthy. In order to maintain physical distancing, providers are teleworking when possible, shifting work schedules, and limiting access to important facilities such as treatment and operations locations to protect critically essential staff.

 

You water is safe and available during the COVID-19 crisis.
