** Boil Water Notice Lifted **

7/5/2012

Customers of the Greenfield and Tinkerview Gardens Water Systems were notified on July 3, 2012, of a Virginia Department of Health boil water notice following a loss of pressure or loss of water due to recent power outages.
Effective immediately, the boil water notice is lifted and it is no longer necessary for customers to boil their tap water prior to use.
Two consecutive bacteriological samples collected twenty-four hours apart have proved that no contamination remains in the systems.
