If you find your toilet paper supplies running low and switch to wipes, remember that Wipes Clog Pipes and put those Not So Flushable wipes in the garbage cans where they belong. These wipes can create huge blockages and sewer overflows and have already become a problem for our fellow wastewater service providers. Keeping the sanitary sewer system flowing is incredibly important to ensuring public health.

March 6, 2020 - Your Water and coronavirus
- The coronavirus has no impact on the quality or supply of your tap water. As always, your tap water is both available and safe.
- While it’s always advisable to stock bottled water at home in case of emergencies that disrupt the water supply, Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) does not expect this health outbreak to disrupt service to our customers.
- LVMWD is committed to providing its customers with safe and reliable water. LVMWD relies 100% on imported water treated by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. This water is treated at the Joseph Jensen Treatment Plant where it undergoes ozonation, filtration and finally chloramination to eliminate pathogens, which includes viruses. This water is then frequently tested for quality throughout our distribution system ensuring the safest and highest quality water is being delivered to our customers. This treated water represents the vast majority of water in our Las Virgenes Reservoir which is then further treated in our Westlake Filtration Plant before being delivered to our customers. This ensures safe drinking water for all our customers.
- LVMWD delivers water of the highest quality and meets all stringent state and federal drinking water requirements. This information is detailed in the agency’s 2018 Water Quality Report, available for review on our website. Review the 2018 WQR
- LVMWD conducts more than 11,000 water quality tests annually to ensure your water meets rigorous drinking water standards. Dedicated LVMWD staff, state certified and highly trained, collect these samples throughout the distribution system and then perform all tests in our state certified testing lab at Tapia Water Reclamation Facility.
The coronavirus outbreak is a quickly evolving public health situation and LVMWD encourages all our valued customers to stay informed and up-to-date. Below are some resources that offer information and how to stay healthy.
