PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Almost a week after a serious water line breach in Pittsylvania County, the boil water notice issued for the Chatham, Tightsqueeze, and Dry Fork areas has been lifted.

On Saturday, May 29, various Pittsylvania County officials announced there was a water leak due to a break between Columbia Forest Products and the water plant.

Then, on Sunday, May 30, a boil water notice was issued for Town of Chatham Waterworks, Tightsqueeze, and Dry Fork customers, saying that water line repair efforts were underway.

However, as of Friday, June 4, Pittsylvania County Public Safety says testing has been performed and the water is safe to consume.
