CORONAVIRUS FAST FACTS
The virus is susceptible to disinfectants used in water treatment.
more resistant to disinfection than E. coli, which water systems must protect against.
Chlorination can be effective in destroying the virus.
A free chlorine residual, which must be maintained for public water systems to protect against microbes, is a good indicator that the water is safe from viruses. MVWA continually monitors the chlorine residual throughout the distribution system network.
Dilute bleach solutions (0.1% - 0.5%) and 70% alcohol have proven to be effective against similar coronaviruses.
Good hygienic practices are effective in controlling the spread of viruses.
