Pungo-Blackwater Library and Senior Center to Close Early Friday, Nov. 15, and Remain Closed Saturday, Nov. 16

Friday, November 08, 2013

The Pungo-Blackwater Library at 916 Princess Anne Road and the Senior Resource Center at 912 Princess Anne Road will close at 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15, and will remain closed all day on Saturday, Nov. 16, to allow for disinfection of its well-water system.


On Oct. 31, the Virginia Beach Health Department issued a boil water notice to the library, Creeds Elementary School and the Senior Resource Center because of contamination found in well water there. The water system for those buildings is owned and operated by the Virginia Beach City Public Schools, which is working with the Health Department to remedy the problem.


The library is normally closed on Sundays. It is expected to reopen Monday, Nov. 18, at 10 a.m.
