Boil water

This is an update to this post. As we told you first, Virginia American Water had issued a boil water advisory for the Landmark and Van Dorn neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia surrounding last week ‘s massive water main break.

Now, the advisory has been lifted on Sunday morning.


As readers know, Edsall Road between S. Van Dorn and S. Whiting near I-395 remains closed Thursday while crews finish repairing last night’s MAJOR water main break in Alexandria, Virginia.

Work is almost complete on repairs to the water main as well as the two broken valves in the immediate vicinity of the break. However, crews still must finish repairing the roadway after the repairs to the water main are complete. Expect Edsall Road to remain CLOSED through the beginning of the evening rush hour.

Now, Virginia American Water has issued this boiling water advisory for the immediate area around Edsall Road

Almost finished repairs. If you are still without water now, we anticipate water to be back on between 3 and 4 pm today.

When it comes back on, if you live at Landmark Terrace, Alexandria Station, Stanton Place or Cascade at Landmark please boil your water first before drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation. bring to a full boil for a minimum of one minute, then cool before use. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms that may be present in the water.

Once the system recovers, we will be collecting water quality samples in the area of the outage. You will receive another message from us letting you know when this advisory is over.

For more information, call us at 1-800-452-6863.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to ensure the integrity of the system and the quality of the water. Please share this information with all other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to ensure the integrity of the system and the quality of the water.
