By offering arts groups affordable space and services in lieu of large cash grants, Arlingon Cultural Affairs has fostered one of the most vibrant arts scenes in the DC metropolitan area. By creatively using its status as a government body to leverage resources for the arts, the County demonstrated that artists and government can work together, and transformed its own cultural landscape in the process. The first and only arts organization to win the Innovations in American Government Award from Harvard University and the Ford Foundation, Arlington Cultural Affairs is now a national model for regional arts support. Arlington Cultural Affairs provides programs and services that build community and transform lives by enhancing enjoyment and understanding of, and participation in, the arts. The unit is a Division of the Arlington County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources.

Boil Water Advisory: What To Do
Arlington County has issued a boil water notice for parts of the County (see searchable map) as a precaution following a water transmission main break. During this advisory, bottled water is the best option, but if you do not have bottled water available, boil your tap water before using it.

The County will inform residents when tests have confirmed the safety of the system and the advisory is canceled.

Boil Tap Water

Heat the water in a pot until bubbles come quickly from the bottom.
Boil water for 3 minutes.
Turn off the heat source and let the water cool completely.
Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
Note: You should boil tap water even if it is filtered. Most kitchen and other household water filters do not remove bacteria or viruses.
