The RWA is continuing to monitor state and national advisories regarding COVID-19. Protecting public health is our number one priority. We have updated our emergency operations plans for COVID-19 to meet our service obligations to our customers and communities. For the safety of our employees and to be consistent with the public health goal of minimizing unnecessary contact, our non-critical employees are working remotely until further notice.

No. There has been no evidence that COVID-19 can travel in water. Furthermore, the RWA's regular water treatment processes include disinfecting all water before it reaches customers. This disinfection process ensures that tap water is safe from COVID-19. The spread of COVID-19 will not impact the RWA’s clean, safe and high-quality tap water.
No. The RWA's water is safe and high-quality, no boiling is needed. The United States Environmental Protection Agency recommends that people continue to use and drink tap water as usual. No extra precautions are needed for consumption, hand washing or any other purpose.
Non-critical RWA employees, including customer care representatives, are currently working remotely. For assistance with your account, please review the payment and billing section of this website.
