UPDATE: Boil Water Notice to Remain in Effect at Least Until Monday, Jan. 9, 2023 Following Princess Anne Road Utility Construction Damage

​VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (Jan. 7, 2023) - The Virginia Beach Department of Public Utilities advises that the utility repair to fix a damaged water valve that occurred yesterday is taking longer than anticipated. Due to this delay, the boil water notice issued yesterday will now be in effect until at least Monday, Jan. 9 at 6 a.m. Public Utilities will issue the first update tomorrow morning, after the first 24 hours of water sample testing is complete.

Only the locations listed below are impacted by the boil water notice. NO residential locations are impacted.

A boil water notice is immediately in effect for the following in the Princess Anne Road area: Tidewater Community College – Virginia Beach Campus, ODU/NSU Virginia Beach Higher Education Center, Landstown Elementary School, Landstown Middle School, Landstown High School, LifeNet Health, SPSA Landstown Transfer Station, and Sentara Princess Anne General Hospital. The department is currently collecting and testing water samples from the affected area's water distribution system to ensure the water is safe to drink.

Addresses specifically affected by the notice include:

  • 1700 College Crescent
  • 1825 Concert Drive
  • 1864 Concert Drive
  • 1881 Concert Drive
  • 2001 Concert Drive
  • 2204 Recreation Drive

Addresses include all suites. The department will issue an update tomorrow after the first 24 hours of water sample testing are completed. All water samples collected must meet state and federal drinking water standards before the "boil water" notice can be lifted.

Contractor work in the vicinity of Princess Anne Road and S Independence Boulevard resulted in damage to a water valve. The Department of Public Utilities responded to isolate the damaged valve.

The department would like to thank the affected businesses for their patience and apologizes for any inconvenience.

IMPORTANT: Boil Water Instructions:

When water service is restored, please flush all cold-water faucets for approximately 2-3 minutes. Prior to drinking water from the city's public water system, bring the water to a rolling boil for approximately one minute. This will help destroy bacteria that may have contaminated the drinking water. Caution: Use extreme caution with boiling water to avoid burns. Allow the water to cool before using.

Hot tap water is not a substitute for boiling water. Water from a water heater is not intended for drinking.

Additionally, if your freezer has an automatic icemaker, discard all the ice cubes and turn off the icemaker until the "boil water" notice is lifted.
