Annual Water Quality Reports

The Annual Drinking Water Quality Report for any calendar year is designed to inform you about your drinking water quality. Our goal is provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water, and we want you to understand the efforts we make to protect your water supply. The quality of your drinking water must meet state and federal requirements administered by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).

If you have any questions about the report, want additional information about any aspect of your drinking water, or want to know how to participate in decisions that may affect the quality of your drinking water, please contact the Town Office at 434-352-8268.


Backflow Prevention Program

The purpose of the Backflow Prevention Program is to ensure that there is no possible contamination of your drinking water due to improper plumbing interconnections. Examples of potential cross connections are commercial boilers, a facility with chemical usage or a residential property with an irrigation system, garden hoses, etc. The best protection of backflow is an air gap. Another backflow protection is a mechanical valve that senses a flow reversal and stops possibly harmful water from entering our drinking water. 

The program is mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Virginia Department of Health; Office of Drinking Water. A backflow device/assembly is owned and maintained by the property owner and the testing is performed by a certified and approved backflow tester(s). 

Scheduled appointments for the testing are necessary, as most commercial and residential properties are tested during normal business hours.
