The Mohawk Valley Water Authority (MVWA) is reassuring the public that the drinking water supply is safe. The production of filtered, purified drinking water will continue uninterrupted and unaffected by the current state of emergency related to the Covid19 virus. Scientific research conducted by federal and international agencies indicates our current disinfection process and chlorine dosage is effective at preventing the spread of this virus through drinking water.
