The city of Mora is taking steps to make sure their utility staff stay healthy and provide crucial services. “I want the public to rest assured we will continue to supply potable water and electricity,” said Mora City Administrator Lindy Crawford. “We need our electric and water/sewer staff to remain healthy.”
Staff have changed schedules to reduce employee contact among each other, city vehicles are not being shared and gathering areas like break rooms are closed.
Drinking water from Mora Municipal Utilities comes from three groundwater wells ranging from 195-210 feet deep.
The water is monitored daily and meets all federal and state water quality requirements. The city’s consumer confidence report shows the city met all requirements for monitored substances like lead, chlorine, bacteria and nitrate.
The World Health Organization has stated the COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies and evidence shows risk is low.
