Is it safe to drink tap water? 150 150 Sonoma County Emergency and Preparedness Information

Yes. Coronavirus, a respiratory illness like the flu or cold, is not spread through tap water. Sonoma Water, our drinking water supplier, uses chlorine to eliminate pathogens, which includes viruses. This ensures safe drinking water for all our customers. There are no impacts from the coronavirus to the City’s public water system. Santa Rosa Water’s staff is highly trained and prepared for emergencies and has contingency plans in place to provide water supply.
