Officials: Crozet Water Safe to Drink

Feb. 21, 2014

Officials are reassuring residents the water in Albemarle County is safe to drink, after recent reports of discolored water coming from the taps.

The Albemarle Co. Service Authority (ACSA) reports that they've tested the water thoroughly, and can't find anything wrong with it at the source or in people's homes.

Officials released a statement saying they went back to homes that were affected by yellowish-colored water, and it has since cleared up.

In that statement the ACSA say additional testing at the treatment plant and throughout the distribution system has confirmed the absence of any chemicals that may potentially cause discoloration.

The service authority flushed out many of the pipes in the affected area, and say they haven't received any complaints since Sunday.

If a customer has further questions or concerns about the water, please call Tim Brown at 977-4511, extension 119 during normal business hours, or the 24-hour emergency number of 1-888-252-3468.
