- Water Safety Information: EPA recommends that Americans continue to use and drink tap water as usual. The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that the, “presence of the COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies and based on current evidence the risk to water supplies is low.” Additionally, according to the CDC, COVID-19 is mainly thought to spread between people who are in close contact with one another. Further, EPA’s drinking water regulations require treatment at public water systems to remove or kill pathogens, including viruses. These treatments include disinfectants such as chlorine that remove or kill pathogens before they reach the tap.
Our water system is treated and closely monitored. It is tested according to state requirements and has no pathogens, e-coli or coliform detected. MMWC’s Board of Directors and its employee will do everything possible to maintain safe, clean drinking water during these challenging times.
- The Board of Directors schedule their monthly meetings for the second Monday of the month at 6:00 p.m. CCME members are welcome to attend and non-members may attend with prior permission. Occassionally the meetings are canceled or postponed, so it is recommended that one check with the office prior to attending.
