Tucson Water wants you to know that its reclaimed water is also disinfected, at a higher concentration than drinking water. Coronavirus has not been found in properly disinfected water.
Tucson Water was one of the first water utilities in the nation to begin recycling water, treating it for irrigation and other non-drinking water uses.
