Drinking Water Quality All Clear near Princess Anne Plaza

Saturday, May 26, 2012

City of Virginia Beach residents were notified on Friday, May 25, that a single water distribution system sample near the intersection of Rosemont Road and South Plaza Trail had tested positive for E-coli.  Follow-up testing did not confirm E-coli.  However, as a precaution, Public Utilities conducted extensive waterline flushing and additional testing at the location of the positive sample, and the surrounding areas.   The results of the additional testing indicate that all samples were negative for E-Coli and coliform bacteria.  The public water supply in the Princess Anne Plaza area, as well as that throughout the City, is safe, and exceeds all state and federal drinking water standards.
