Boil Water Advisory Canceled For Hopewell

HOPEWELL, Va. (WRIC) — Officials at the Virginia American Water company have called off the boil water advisory previously issued for Hopewell and Prince George County.

Officials took two rounds of water sampling, 24 hours apart and say that their samples showed no signs of contamination.

“The results of the water samples we took were satisfactory, indicating there is no longer a need to boil the water. All customers may resume normal use of their tap water,” a statement from the company read.

“We are very grateful for everyone’s patience and cooperation, especially the support of City of Hopewell officials and emergency responders,” said Virginia American Water President William R. Walsh.

The boil water advisory was issued Tuesday night as a precaution due to the loss of water pressure associated with the shut down of the city’s water treatment plant.

The free bottled water distribution site will be discontinued with this announcement.

Customers with further questions may contact Virginia American Water’s customer service center at 1-800-452-6863.
