Amherst Public Works continues to operate throughout COVID-19 to provide essential services to the Town. DPW personnel are working daily to provide drinking water, treat wastewater, and keep public areas and roadways safe.
We understand everyone’s heightened awareness regarding potential exposure routes to COVID-19. We want to reassure residents and businesses that the Amherst drinking water is safe to drink and use, as always. Our treatment and disinfection process kills viruses, including the coronavirus. Town staff continue to monitor and test the drinking water quality to ensure its safety. This regular monitoring includes testing that chlorine levels are adequate throughout the Town.
This is just another way that the Amherst Public Works Department is working for YOU.
