How to Shut Off Your Water
It’s good to know how to turn off the water to your house or business. That way you are prepared whatever the circumstances. Learn More...
The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) advises that in the event of a water outage, after water service is restored customers should take the precaution of not drinking their tap water without first heating the water to a rolling boil and holding it there for one minute. When your water comes back on, you should first open all the taps in your house and flush them until the water is clear. After flushing your faucets and other taps, VDH calls for the extra step of boiling the water before consuming. This precaution is due to the potential for the loss of pressure in a water system to allow contamination to enter the distribution pipes.
Monday, August 21, 2017. Mark that date in your calendar, because this is one you don’t want to miss. On August 21, North America will experience a rare and awe-inspiring astronomical event —a solar eclipse. The last time a total solar eclipse spanned across the continent of North America was almost a century ago—June 8, 1918. The most recent total eclipse of the sun that could be viewed from anywhere in America was 38 years ago, February 26, 1979, and was visible in five US states as well as parts of Canada and Greenland. Needless to say, this just doesn’t happen every day.
