A message from the Marina Coast Water District regarding COVID-19 and your water
We would like to reassure you that there is no indication that transmission of COVID-19 can occur via drinking water supplies, and we do not anticipate any current scenario that would interrupt water availability to our community.
We are committed to ensuring your water quality and water reliability because we know you depend upon it every day. MCWD's drinking water is safe to drink, surpasses all drinking water standards, and we monitor water quality on a continual basis to ensure your water always meet standards. Also, as a routine precaution, the District chlorinates its drinking water and maintains a safe disinfection residual in the system to ensure protection against viruses and bacteria.
At this time, we are asking our customers to please limit in-person visits to our office and to pay bills by phone or mail through at least April 30, 2020. We're sorry for this inconvenience but believe it to be a prudent precautionary measure that helps ensure our employees remain healthy and at work.
