Pungo Library and Senior Center to Close Dec. 26 and 27 During Water System Treatment

Monday, December 16, 2013

The Pungo-Blackwater Library and the Virginia Beach Senior Resource Center, at 912 and 916 Princess Anne Road, will be closed on Dec. 26 and 27 to allow for disinfection of the buildings’ water system.


The two buildings and nearby Creeds Elementary School use the same water system, which is owned and operated by the Virginia Beach City Public Schools. Several times since September, water from this system has tested positive for contamination. The Health Department has issued a boil notice water for these locations and is working with school officials to remedy the problem. The water is not being used for drinking or washing in any of these buildings.


On Dec. 26 and 27, the water system will be disinfected. The school will be closed for winter break, and the library and senior center will be closed during the water treatment.
