The Main Thing to Know:
Your Drinking Water is Safe
According to health officials, COVID-19 is primarily transmitted person-to-person and there is no indication that transmission can occur via drinking water supplies.
Truckee Meadows Water Authority utilizes Conventional Treatment, followed by full-scale chlorine disinfection, in its water treatment facilities. This process is one of the most effective water treatment processes in removing contaminants from water.
TMWA does not anticipate any foreseeable scenario that would interrupt water availability to our community.
TMWA has also temporarily suspended water shut-offs due to an inability to pay. We encourage any of our customers that may be experiencing a hardship to contact us at (775) 834-8080.
