UPDATED WEDNESDAY 12:05 pm — According to the City of Lynchburg’s Department of Water Resources, the Boil Water Advisory issued on July 8 to customers in the Pleasant Valley, Tyreeanna and Route 460 east area has been rescinded. The problem has been corrected, and it is no longer necessary for these customers to boil their water.
PREVIOUSLY: From the City of Lynchburg: According the Lynchburg Department of Water Resources, the contractor for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has completed the water line work in the Pleasant Valley, Tyreeanna and Route 460 areas. Since the work was completed, Water Resources has been filling the 24” water line, and the majority of water customers in the affected areas should now have water. Residents may experience a milky appearance to the water due to air in the system. It is recommended to fill a glass with water, and if the cloudiness does not clear in a few minutes, contact Water Resources at (434) 455-4250. Water Resources is currently flushing the water system, and water samples are being collected today to be tested to ensure the safety of the water supply. As a precaution, a Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until at least Wednesday, July 13, when the results of the water quality testing will be known. The following areas will be impacted: Pleasant Valley, Tyreeanna and along Route 460 east of the Campbell Avenue interchange. Specific streets include Poston Street, Holcomb Path Road, Rockwell Road, Kavanaugh Road, Aultice Lane, Carnell Lane, Tyreeanna Road, Pleasant Valley Road, Statham Lane, Turner Lane, Spinoza Circle, Nickerson Road, Channie Lane, and Concord Turnpike from the Lynchburg Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant east to Route 460.
