COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and Your Water Supply
The quality of your water is our number one priority. Our staff are actively monitoring the situation and will continue to safeguard your water system as they have done for over four decades. Gorgoza’s water is sourced from deep ground wells and an artisan spring, then delivered to you through a closed sanitary distribution system that meets or exceeds all state and federal quality standards. To further reiterate the point, please refer to the following statement issued by the Utah Department of Environment Quality on March 6th:
SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) wants residents to know that their public water supply is safe. In the case of quarantine or outbreak related to the coronavirus, public drinking water systems are designed to continuously deliver safe drinking water to your tap. “Drinking water treatment and disinfection has effectively protected Utah’s population for many decades. These protections will safeguard residents against drinking-water-borne viral infections—including coronavirus,” says Marie Owens, Director of DEQ’s Division of Drinking Water. “There is no need for residents to stock up on surplus bottled water in preparation for a potential outbreak of coronavirus.”
Established in 1991, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) mission is to safeguard and improve Utah’s air, land and water through balanced regulation. DEQ implements state and federal environmental laws and works with individuals, community groups and businesses to protect the quality of Utah’s air, land and water.
