Due to a power outage at Virginia American Water’s water treatment plant in Hopewell, parts of the company’s Hopewell district are experiencing low water pressure or no water.
All customers are asked to conserve water and reduce all non-essential water use until further notice. Please refrain from using water for non-essential activities such as laundry and car washing.
In addition, due to the lack of water pressure, Virginia American Water is issuing a boil water advisory as a precautionary measure only for residents in the City of Hopewell, as well as the subdivisions of New Birchett Estates, Cedar Creek, Cedar Creek West, Strattford Woods and Mullberry Woods in Prince George County.
Please note that a boil water advisory is a standard precaution that is taken whenever there is loss of pressure in water mains. Virginia American Water will provide information as to when the advisory is lifted.
Until further notice, impacted customers should bring tap water to a rolling boil for one minute and allow cooling before using for consumption, drinking, making baby formula, ice cubes, washing vegetables and fruit, and for brushing teeth.
Bottled water distribution information to come.
