UPDATE – COVID-19 from the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD):

Here is a link to information NTMWD posted on our website to provide information to the public addressing questions about the new coronavirus (COVID-19) and water/wastewater treatment.
https://www.ntmwd.com/coronavirus-covid-19/

Here are a few key takeaways:
• Based on current evidence, the risk to water supplies is low.
• Coronaviruses (and other viruses) do not persist in chlorinated/chloraminated waters, such as those used in the water treatment process and the transmission of drinking water.
• Standard municipal wastewater system disinfection practices, including ultraviolet irradiation and/or chlorination, are effective in controlling the virus provided utilities monitor and maintain required disinfection levels during treatment.
Additionally, our team is working on plans to ensure continuity of operations if the virus should begin to effect essential personnel or their families.

We will keep you apprised of any new developments, and I encourage you to monitor the following online resources for updates:
