COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. — A water main break could lead to discolored water coming out of the pipes in Colonial Heights.

“The Utility Division is currently working on an Emergency Water Main Break located on Yorkshire Road that will also effect Jamestown Road, Williamsburg Road, Holly Avenue and the area from Ellerslie Avenue to Conduit Road to Holly Avenue,” a city spokesman said. “You may experience some discolored water between these times. If this should happen, first run the cold water in your bathtub for about 15 to 20 minutes.”

If your problem does not clear up within this time period, please contact the Utilities Division at (804) 520-9393 between 7:30 AM and 3:30 PM Monday through Friday.

After hours or weekends, call the Police Department at (804) 520-9300 and they will dispatch Utility personnel to your home or business.
