Water and Power in Crozet – Unconfirmed Updates

Two unconfirmed rumors … take them for what they are ….

via Facebook:

Just off the phone with ACSA, no boil required, AND….the road to the station has finally been cleared and they are moving trucks loaded with diesel to refuel their generators. Translation….the conserve notice is going to be lifted shortly.

Update 1:02pm 2 July – @CBS19: ACSA is removing the request for Crozet residents to limit their water usage–power and fuel issues have been resolved.

And via email in response to an email to a friend in which I asked “Does Western Ridge have power?”:

Kind of. The back half of the neighborhood does, but not the front half, so we’re still out. This is hearsay, but one of our neighbors told me that her friend stopped to talk to a Dominion guy working outside yesterday. He told her that there was a huge tree that went down near King Family, which caused extensive damage – they’re having to replace not only multiple power lines, but several telephone/electric poles as well. Supposedly he said that if the repair went smoothly, we’d be back up sometime between today and Wednesday; if they run into problems, it could be as late as Saturday.

I’m not sure how the connections are mapped, but you can kind of see a straight-ish line of outage going from the King Family area, through part of Old Trail, Crozet Ave @ Mudhouse & JABA building, down 240 to Western Ridge, etc… so if what I heard is true, I guess we must all somehow be tied back to that issue @ KFV.

I do see several Crozet locations listed on Dominion’s work schedule for today, but I’m keeping my expectations low.

Via Facebook:

New work locations for today say Crozet Ave…good sign hopefully

  1. From ACSA website 7/2/12: Drinking WaterFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
    The ACSA is removing the request for the Crozet residents to limit their water usage. The power and fuel issues have been resolved. We would also like to inform the residents that there is no need to boil the water prior to using it. We have not issued any requests to our customers or the media to boil water. This rumor started outside of the ACSA and has no merit. The water is safe to use and drink. A big “Thank You” to all of our customers in Crozet for their patience during this event.

    1. Thanks, Joy!

      And for clarification on the boil – the information actually came from within ACSA and was later deemed inaccurate …. by ACSA. 🙂

  2. Saw the tree down near King Family – blocking the road and tangled in power lines. Its gnarly.

Something to say?
