This fact sheet has been developed to provide facts about drinking water and wastewater services and COVID-19.

Drinking water in Australia is high quality and is well treated. There is no evidence that drinking water will be affected by coronavirus or that it is transmitted by drinking water. 

Water is an essential service and water utilities are well prepared to manage their response to COVID-19. See the fact sheet here.
