Hillsboro's Water Continues to be Safe to Drink & Use
The health and well-being of Hillsboro's community members, employees, businesses, and partners are the City of Hillsboro's top priority.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is known to spread from person to person through close contact, similar to how the flu is transmitted.
There is currently no evidence to support that Coronavirus is transmitted through drinking water.
Water served by the City of Hillsboro Water Department is safe to drink and use.
Protection of public health is Hillsboro Water Department’s number one priority. Before reaching Hillsboro customer’s taps, water is drawn out of the upper Tualatin River, then thoroughly treated at the Joint Water Commission Water Treatment Plant to remove particles, viruses, bacteria, and other organisms from the drinking water, including COVID-19. Learn more about how this water treatment process keeps drinking water safe.
When Hillsboro Water customers turn on their tap, they can count on their water being tested, treated, and monitored to protect health and safety. If fact, the Water Department conducts thousands of water quality tests each year to ensure your water meets rigorous drinking water standards.
Additional information from the City about the Coronavirus and impacts are available online, and updated frequently.
