Officials Working to Get Louisa Co. Drinking Water Back Up to Standard


Oct. 2, 2013

Residents of Louisa County are being notified that water there has recently violated drinking water standards.

Officials say the water tested positive for excess levels of Haloacetic acid in September.

Health officials say there is no immediate threat to the public, and no one needs to use an alternate supply of water. They are taking steps to lower the acid levels in the water.

Drinking water with high Haloacetic acid levels over several years could increase your risk for cancer.
