Areas Completed

IMPORTANT:   During the flushing of the water mains in your immediate area, you may notice a temporary reduction of water pressure or some discoloration in your tap water.  This discoloration condition is not harmful and should clear up quickly by leaving your cold water running for approximately 15 minutes, once flushing in your neighborhood is complete.  We suggest you do not wash clothes during these operations in your neighborhood.

If discoloration persists, please call (540) 507-7300, option 2, M-F, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM, or after-hours/weekends/holidays, please call (540) 507-7344 or (540) 507-7350.  

Additionally, to reduce/prevent erosion problems, please check your culvert pipes and ditches to make sure they are free of leaves and debris.  

We appreciate your cooperation and we will endeavor to keep any inconvenience to a minimum.
