Should Citizens be concerned about water supply disruption?

Natural disaster emergencies such as tornadoes and hurricanes have the potential to disrupt power supply and the ability to pump water. This is not the case when dealing with a pandemic.

Per the Environmental Protection Agency, "The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies. Based on current evidence, the risk to water supplies is low. Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual. "Locally, the treatment plants practice a multiple-barrier technique of treatment to ensure the safety of our water. Disinfection is most important therefore measurements are taken hourly. We do not anticipate any disruption of water services due to COVID-19.
