AWA’S Water Supply is Safe from Coronavirus Covid-19

Amador Water Agency (AWA) wants to emphasize that our drinking water is not impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). According to the State Water Board, Environmental Protection Agency and Center for Disease Control, conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in AWA drinking water systems, remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that Americans continue to use and drink tap water as usual.





“We are all facing unprecedented and challenging times and AWA will continue to adapt to the challenges as circumstances change,” said AWA Interim General Manager John Kingsbury.

AWA is modifying its operations in accordance with local health advisories. Our Customer Service Desk and lobby are currently closed until further notice for the protection of the public and our employees, and AWA has implemented “social distancing” practices for staff. AWA field operations staff are continuing to work throughout our service area and we ask the public to limit in-person interactions with field staff and maintain social distance.

AWA staff members remain available to assist customers via telephone at 209-223-3018 or email at customerservice@amadorwater.org. Customers may experience additional wait times; we appreciate your patience. If you experience a hardship due to the economic downturn, please contact Customer Services.

Amador County Public Health, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) have more information.
