Spotsylvania water advisory lifted for all but two streets

Spotsylvania water advisory lifted for all but two streets.
The water advisory in Spotsylvania has been lifted in all but one area, according to a county alert sent out Sunday evening.
“All bacteriological sampling has shown that water within the affected area is safe for consumption in accordance with Virginia Department of Health regulations,” the alert said.
A boil-water advisory remains in effect for the area of Commonwealth Drive and Onyx Court off U.S. 1 in the Massaponax area.
The alert said restoration of service has been delayed in that area because of the location of repairs.
The next update for that area will come today.
The break happened at 7:30 a.m. Friday, but crews quickly restored water everywhere except an industrial building on Commonwealth Drive, just south of Cosner’s Corner.
The break near the Cosner’s Corner shopping center temporarily cut off water to homes and businesses along the U.S. 1 corridor, from the Fredericksburg–Spotsylvania line to Thornburg.
Utilities staff flushed the distribution system to eliminate issues from the water main break.
County officials issued the boil-water advisory because water pressure dropped after the break, increasing the possibility of contamination.
