Spotsylvania County Utilities is continuously monitoring reports about the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Spotsylvania County and surrounding areas. We have also established an internal coronavirus task force to organize and respond to changing conditions.
Spotsylvania County uses multiple barriers in their water treatment processes that provide protection from COVID-19. Disinfectants used to treat drinking water, like chlorine, are effective in inactivating COVID-19. Transmission of the virus is not a risk in treated drinking water; and, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the virus has not been detected in drinking water.
In order to be prepared for an outbreak of COVID-19, every department at Spotsylvania County has a Pandemic Plan that addresses staffing and continuity of operations. In addition, staff has inventoried and procured critical parts, equipment, chemicals, fuel and supplies to increase operational resiliency. We are committed to and anticipate we will continue providing uninterrupted service and drinking water that meets federal and state standards to our customers while also protecting our employees’ health and safety.
