Corona Virus update

South Walton Utility Co., Inc. is monitoring the corona virus outbreak very closely and we want to assure you, our members, that we are continuing to ensure that your drinking water remains safe and reliable.

The CDC and EPA have issued statements that we are sharing with you to give you peace of mind with our drinking water. Below are details from the CDC and EPA to provide you with more information should you have any questions

Can the COVID-19 virus spread through drinking water?

 “EPA encourages the continued use of tap water, as COVID-19 has not been detected in drinking water supplies. EPA has established regulations with treatment requirements for public water systems that prevent waterborne pathogens such as viruses from contaminating drinking water and wastewater. COVID-19 is a type of virus that is particularly susceptible to disinfection and standard treatment and disinfectant processes are expected to be effective. “
