Boil-water advisory lifted for downtown Richmond neighborhood

RICHMOND — Richmond Utilities has lifted the 24-hour boil-water advisory in parts of downtown Richmond following work on the area's water main.

The boil water advisory had been issued at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday for Woodland Avenue, Glyndon Avenue and Moberly Avenue between Third and Fifth streets.

The utility had previously announced that repairs on the area's water main would be performed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, which resulted in service disruptions. Howeverr the work went longer than expected into Wednesday afternoon.

Lonnie Banks, water quality specialist, said the boil-water advisory is a routine measure that is taken anytime water pipes are exposed to the air. Water samples were taken and tested before the advisory was lifted.
