Safe and Reliable Water during this COVID-19 pandemic

Juniper Beach Water District is taking all steps necessary to provide safe and reliable water for the duration of this emergency.

Our primary goal during the novel coronavirus / COVID-19 outbreak is to ensure continuity of service providing a safe water supply, necessary inspections, critical maintenance, finances, and customer service.

TAP WATER IS SAFE AND AVAILABLE:
The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in tap water. Standard procedures for tap water filtration, disinfection, and treatment removes or inactivate the virus. Bottled water is not required to meet the same standards as tap water, it's much more expensive, and both the manufacturing and resulting empty plastic bottles are terrible for our environment. Tap water is the safest, least expensive, and most environmentally sound way to remain hydrated.

BE INFORMED:
The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) CDC has a website page dedicated to COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a specific FAQ page regarding COVID-19 and municipal water and sewer systems.
