Due to the low water pressure or lack of water service related to the power outage at pump stations in the identified areas, as a precautionary measure, the Virginia Department of Health has advised that any water for drinking should be boiled, ice from the icemaker should be thrown away, and any water filters should be changed.
The Town is working with local agencies and Appalachian Power Company to restore power to the pump stations.
This BOIL WATER ALERT is in effect until further notice.
When water service is restored, please exercise conservation in your water usage.
