Water & COVID-19 in Colorado

Colorado is known for its beautiful mountains and pristine water supply. As bottled water stocks run low and COVID-19 continues to rampant, many are wondering if Colorado’s tap water is still safe to drink. 

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) releases annual reports on water quality. In the current 2020 report, Denver and Arapahoe County water quality are well above standards with 100% of the sample meeting requirements. The 2019 report similarly detailed the high quality of water in Colorado with each month’s samples met or surpassed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements. As Colorado’s waters flow from the high mountains and do not come down from other states, the water is relatively clean and safe to drink. While it may contain some contaminants, the water is always maintained to keep from harming anyone who drinks it.

Regarding the issue of COVID-19 in drinking-water, the EPA has yet to find COVID-19 in drinking-water supplies. This does not mean that further investigation and sampling will not reveal new cases. However, the EPA advised, “Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual.” Of course, this means our own state’s waters are safe to drink from. Thankfully, Colorado government has maintained that water and sewer companies are an essential workforce. All companies are working within regulations of social distancing and sanitization. Coloradans can be assured that the quality of our water will not drop despite the statewide stay at home order.

This is a relief for many in our state as it becomes difficult to leave our homes, especially to shop for heavy water bottles that may not be in stock. Please continue to drink plenty of water and keep up your immune systems during this unprecedented time. Colorado Times will do our best to provide relevant and helpful information for its readership.
