From Loudoun Water Sunday, June 13th PM:

Dear Raspberry Falls Residents,

On Sunday evening, June 13, 2010, the Raspberry Falls water treatment plant experienced a short disruption in service that prevented pumping water into the system for approximately two hours. This caused several customers to lose water pressure at their residences. Because the distribution system has safeguards to minimize chances of water contamination when pressure drops, and we have maintained disinfectant in the system, we believe that your water continues to meet public health standards. However, through an abundance of caution and in consultation with the Virginia Department of Health, Loudoun Water is issuing a Precautionary Boil Water Notice. Operations staff has collected water samples and additional samples will be taken on both Monday and Tuesday. Loudoun Water will remove the Precautionary Boil Water Notice on Wednesday pending sample results.

Loudoun Water will provide an update Tuesday once the first bacteriological sampling results are received.

We have listed additional information from the Virginia Department of Health that explains procedures customers should follow during a Boil Water Notice.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
