Northwest Rural Water District
In the past few days Northwest Rural Water District (NRWD) has received a couple of phone calls from customers regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus). On March 12, 2020 the District received a note from the EPA Region 8 office stating that coronavirus has not been detected in drinking water supplies. You can continue to drink water from your tap as usual. Please do not run to the store and spend a lot of money on bottled water as that is unnecessary.
The other questions that have come up have been along the lines of, “Will water still be available if NRWD personnel come down with the coronavirus?” The answer to that question is yes. Staff is primarily concerned with maintenance of the system, monitoring the system, and new installations. The District’s water system is fully automated and NRWD personnel have the ability to monitor the system from home. It is also highly unlikely that the District’s young and healthy personnel are going to all come down with this virus. Please do not panic as it is highly unlikely there is any risk to your water system.
