Water Line Break

Originally published 6/25/14

At 9:00 AM today, emergency crews were sent out to fix a water line break in Westbriar Zone D. Roads were soaked in brown muddy water as repairs progressed.

The break occured as a contractor for Dominion Power Company was drilling horizontally under the road to hook up electrical power for a new house being built at 1102 Westbriar Court. The drill punctured a 12″ water line in front of the house.

According to a Dominion repair crew member, the damaged water line was not marked on the work order. There are two lines that come down the road, one on each side. The other line was properly marked.

The water service had to be shut off at the water tower located in the woods above the horseshoe street.

The diligent work of the crews put the emergency to bed by 1:15 PM
