DRINKING WATER PROBLEM CORRECTED  

Town of Drakes Branch        

Customers of the Town of Drakes Branch were notified on July 3, 2019 of a problem with our drinking water, and were advised to boil all drinking/cooking water until further notice.   

 Bacteriological tests collected on June 25, 2019 and July 1, 2019 indicated the presence of coliform bacteria and / or E. coli.  The Boil Water Notice was issued as a safety precaution due to the presence of the bacteria in the water supply.

 Additional sampling performed on July 8, 2019 and July 9, 2019 resulted in all distribution samples testing negative for detection of bacteria in the water.  Therefore we are pleased to report that the problem has been corrected and that it is no longer necessary to boil all drinking/cooking water.  We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.    

As always, you may contact the Town Office at 434-568-3091 or at 4800 Drakes Main Street, Drakes Branch, VA with any comments or questions.    

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.      

This notice is being sent to you by the Town of Drakes Branch
