CLAYPOOL HILL, Va. — Water service will be temporarily out to 400 homes in Tazewell County as crews work to complete a local water line replacement project.

Dahmon Ball, administrator of the Tazewell County Public Service Administration, said water service will be out temporarily on Tuesday to residents in the Cedar Land Farms subdivision.

“The Cedar Land Farms Subdivision Waterline Rehabilitation Project is nearing completion,” Ball said. “On Tuesday, July 30 crews will proceed with work on the pressure reducing valve station and water service will be interrupted from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. as a result. Approximately 400 homes in the subdivision will be impacted.”

Ball said when water service is restored the water will be safe for consumers to use.

“We just wanted to notify people so they can prepare ahead of time for the outage,” Ball said.

Ball said the rehabilitation project will ultimately replace more than 10,000 feet of water line.

“The project consisted of replacing 9,700 feet of 6-inch water lines, 7,000 feet of 4-inch water lines, and 1,200 feet of 2-inch water lines,” Ball said. “Additionally, it encompasses renovations to a 100,000 gallon water tank in the area.”
