COVID-19 Update: Drinking Water Is Safe, Won’t Be Shut Off
The Philadelphia Water Department is taking all necessary measures to ensure continued delivery of safe drinking water and wastewater treatment services as City officials respond to the COVID-19 emergency.
We have suspended water shutoffs and are waiving fees. To avoid loss of water due to main replacement, we have also suspended new construction.
Please see the full statement regarding our efforts to ensure continued delivery of services and info about canceled events and deadlines here.
