Power Returns to Water Plant

Power was returned to the Potomac Plant of the Fairfax County Water Authority around noon today. While this is great news, it is important that people continue to conserve water and boil water for drinking purposes. If power restorations hold, water should be restored to the system in approximately 24 hours. As power is restored to the system, Water Authority personnel will clean the system by flushing water through fire hydrants and air release valves. Certified laboratory personnel will collect samples to test for potentially harmful bacteria from the Fairfax County Water Authority System. These procedures are being taken as precautionary measures for your health and safety. Continue boiling your water until further notice
