The Pulaski County Public Service Authority (PSA) water distribution system experienced a disruption in normal flow, which caused a discoloring of water in the Fairlawn and Dublin areas.
Samples taken at the water treatment plant and from the distribution system during the event indicated adequate chlorine levels were maintained throughout the event. The system is being flushed to remove the effected water, and significant progress has been made.
“We anticipate small pockets of discolored water may be present over the next 24 to 48 hours. There is no shortage of, or notice to conserve, water and we plan on continued flushing to address the issue,” according to Anthony Akers, interim assistant county administrator.
Anyone having any personal concerns regarding the safety of the water can visit the Virginia Department Health website at: http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/ODW/PDF/BoilWaterTrifoldBrochure.pdf.
Pulaski County is sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused its customers.
