Antioch’s Tap Water is Safe to Drink

Can I catch COVID-19 from drinking water?

There is no evidence that the COVID-19 virus is transmitted by drinking water. The current evidence is that the virus is most likely transmitted from person-to-person by sneezing and coughing.

Should I buy bottle water?

There is no need to buy bottled water for drinking. Safe, clean tap water will continue to be supplied directly to your home every day.

How is the City of Antioch protecting the water supply?

There is almost no human contact in the process of treating water for drinking.  Existing water treatment and disinfection processes, including the use of chloramines are effective in removing viruses from the water supply.

What if workers are quarantined at home, will water still be supplied?

Water is an essential service and the City of Antioch is doing their best to manage its response to the COVID-19.  The water treatment plant has an existing Emergency Response Plan and will make updates accordingly in response to the most current available information.

Who should I contact if I still have questions?

You can contact Laura Villasana at the Water Treatment Plant.  She can be reached at (925) 779-7024 or by email at
