City dispels rumor about unsafe drinking water

Fri, 03/22/2019 - 18:15

The City has received several inquires about a rumor circulating that someone has contracted intestinal parasites from drinking the City’s water and that there have been 120 cases at the hospital. This claim is completely unfounded. The City’s drinking water is safe and the Winchester Medical Center has stated that they are unaware of any recent diagnosed cases of intestinal parasites. The City has a rigorous testing and treatment process with 24/7 monitoring that provides consistently safe drinking water.

For more information about the City’s water, please review the City’s Water Quality Report and “From River to Faucet” video for an explanation about how the City’s water is treated and distributed.
