According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods that use chlorine disinfection, such as those in Fort Bend Municipal Utility District 118’s drinking water system, should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.
