The COVID-19 pandemic has left many businesses, schools, homes and other buildings unused for weeks. Once people return to these structures, the water needs to be refreshed.

Under normal use, water pipes maintain a chlorine residual that protects public health and aesthetic water quality. Water that sits for a few weeks becomes stagnant.

To restore your building with fresh water, IRWD recommends that you take the following steps:

1. Identify all water taps, toilets, shower and bathtub fixt... Continue Reading »
