EPA Update: Coronavirus and Drinking Water and Wastewater

Posted at 5:40 PM CDT

There is no higher priority for EPA than protecting the health and safety of Americans. EPA is providing this important information about COVID-19 as it relates to drinking water and wastewater to provide clarity to the public. The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies. Based on current evidence, the risk to water supplies is low. Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual.

Don’t Bag Recyclables

Recyclables bagged in plastic bags end up in the landfill 90% of the time. Due to safety and productivity, recycling centers do not open up plastic bags to sort their contents. They simply remove the bags and contents and discard them as contamination. If you need to bag your recyclables, use paper bags or cardboard boxes.
