The environmental protection agency has stated that the Covid-19 virus has not been detected in drinking water supplies. Based on current evidence the risk to water supplies is low. Existing treatment requirements for public water systems prevent waterborne pathogens such as viruses from contaminating drinking water. Americans can continue to use and drink water from the tap as usual.
City of Alma water treatment personnel have confirmed the uninterrupted availability of supplies necessary for the water treatment process.
Rest assured, the City of Alma Public Works is proactive in monitoring the situation and taking every precaution to keep our customers and employees safe while providing continued quality service. If you have any questions, please call us at 479-632-2254.
