CHATHAM, Va. (WFXR) — After a water line break in Pittsylvania County Saturday led to a boil water notice for three communities, the Mayor of Chatham says water has been restored to residences and businesses in the Chatham town limits and Tightsqueeze as of Tuesday.

On Tuesday, June 1, Mayor Will Pace announced that Inframark and the Chatham Volunteer Fire Department were still flushing hydrants around the area.

If your residence or business is still without water, you are encouraged to visit the Chatham Volunteer Fire Department and/or call Town Hall at (434) 432-9515.

As of Tuesday, Pace says the boil water notice is still in effect.

The first water sample was collected on Tuesday, with the results of the first test expected on Wednesday, June 2. However, officials still need to conduct a second test.
