WATSONVILLE'S TAP WATER REMAINS SAFE TO CONSUME

Newsflash Watsonville's water remains potable

Our Public Works & Utility Department is providing this important information about COVID-19 as it relates to your drinking water to provide clarity to our customers. Residents can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual.

There is no higher priority for the City of Watsonville than protecting the health and safety of our community. Our Public Works & Utility Department is providing this important information about COVID-19 as it relates to your drinking water to provide clarity to our customers. Residents can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual.  


The City of Watsonville’s Water Division has and will continue to comply with the EPA’s strict regulations in potable water treatment for public water systems. COVID-19 is a type of virus that is particularly susceptible to disinfection. Standard treatment and chlorine disinfection processes that our Water Division follows are expected to be effective in disinfecting the COVID-19 virus.


For detailed information about the relationship between COVID-19 and drinking water, you can visit the EPA’s new webpage Q&A and the CDC section on water transmission and COVID-19; as well as the American Water Works Association new coronavirus resource page, which is updated as new information becomes available.
