PUBLIC NOTICE of WATER OUTAGE on MARCH 3 & MARCH 10 (LAKE POINT AND NEWBERRY CROSSING):

First Planned Water Service Interruption Scheduled for Wednesday March 3, 2021 - To affect approximately 352 households in Lake Point and Newberry Crossing.

Second Planned Water Service Interruption Scheduled for Wednesday, March 10, 2021 - To affect approximately 382 households in Lake Point, Newberry Crossing and Falls Place.

Over the next 2 weeks, the Town of Round Hill Utility Department has planned water service interruptions scheduled for 2 weekdays during the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. These planned water outages have been requested by the Project Contractor as they install new storm water structures under Loudoun Street for the Franklin Park Trail. During these water outage periods the main water valves will be shut off to allow for careful excavation and installation work around a critical 12” water main line under Loudoun Street.

This public notice is directed to the above referenced customers with the following suggestions to help minimize the impact during the interruption to service:

· Consider taking showers and baths the night before or early in the morning before 8:00 AM.

· Consider washing clothes and dirty dishes the night before the water outage.

· Consider using disposable plates, cups, and silverware to reduce the number of dirty dishes.

· Consider pulling extra water to flush toilets during the outage. A bucket or large pan of water poured into the toilet will flush it in the event of an emergency or outage. Fill the bathtub before the outage (for flushing and other non-potable purposes). Please be careful if you have young children around a full bathtub.

The Town will also provide a flat of bottled water to help the above referenced customers during this water outage. The Town will be distributing water from a Town Utility Truck at the entrance to the Lake Point Neighborhood on Marbury Street.

The Town has requested that the Project Contractor ensure that these service interruptions will be "controlled water outages" and that water service should be reestablished each day by 5:00 PM (in time for dinner).

Unlike with previous water outages after flushing lines, emergency repairs or valve installations, this water outage should not cause any extra debris in the lines (brown water). However, if you experience any water clarity problems, please don’t hesitate to flush your water faucets or run your tub. It will clear up and it does not pose a health issue. The Town will provide you with information on how to properly run faucets after a water outage on Facebook and the Town Website.

Loudoun County Fire and Rescue and the Round Hill Fire Department have been notified and will add a tanker task force during any period where hydrants are out of service.

There will also be a lane closure on East Loudoun Street while crews are working, and motorists are urged to use caution while travelling through the area.

NOTE: After the two water outage events are completed on March 3 and March 10, the construction project will be heading west towards Main Street, where there will be two additional water outage events scheduled (as the contractor gets closer to the target locations the date will be announced). However, the next two water outage events will not impact Lake Point or Newberry Crossing. At this time there are no further planned water outage events for Lake Point and Newberry Crossing.

The Town will provide updates on the Town website and page, and through Alert Loudoun. Residents can also call 540-338-7878 or email [email protected] if you have any questions regarding the service interruption. Please sign up for Alert Loudoun for text messages on this and any other urgent public notices.

PUBLIC REMINDER TO SIGN UP FOR ALERT LOUDOUN:

As the Town of Round Hill and Loudoun County continue to work on the Franklin Park Trail (along Loudoun Street) and then the Main Street Enhancement Project (Exxon to the Old Train Station), there is a need to communicate with the public if there is a water shut down event or road shut down event (planned or unplanned) due to the construction work.

Town Staff encourages all residents to sign up for "Alert Loudoun" as a communication tool to find out about any emergency in Round Hill or in the greater Loudoun County Region. Keep in mind Town Staff will continue to use Facebook, the Town Website and directed emails to local HOA Managers as the other communication tools for emergencies.

Alert Loudoun is the notification system Loudoun County uses to send citizens emergency information, news releases, traffic information, weather alerts, and more.

The system will send you information you need wherever you are. For example, subscribers may register to receive weather alerts that affect not only their home address, but also their work location, their children’s day care provider, their children’s school, or their parents’ home.

Alert Loudoun also gives subscribers the ability to customize how they receive information - by text, email, and / or mobile app. The new system will first send a message to what you designate as your primary means of notification. If it doesn’t reach you that way, it will try another method.

PUBLIC NOTICE ABOUT FLUSHING LINES AFTER A TEMPORARY SHUTDOWN:

Yesterday (2-26-21) the Town Utility Staff had to conduct an emergency repair/flushing of a hydrant/valve near the Lake Point Neighborhood.

After flushing of water mains or a line shutdown event in a public water system, especially a system supplied by wells, it is normal to see discolored water for up to 48 hours. When flushing occurs, the sediments that have settled out in the water pipes will become dislodged by the scouring action of the water moving through the pipes at a higher rate than normal. These particles will move about in the system until they resettle. Discoloration does not mean the water is unsafe, it just means there are still some particles that didn't get flushed out.

If you experience discolored water in your home after a flushing event you are encouraged to allow one, and only one, faucet to run to clear out your service line. Use only the cold water valve so you don't introduce the sediments into your hot water heater. Opening multiple faucets at the same time will only cause the sediment to spread throughout your homes pipes and take longer to clean out your pipes. Choose a faucet that does not have an aerator on it, such as a bathtub, so the aerator device on the faucet does not clog up.

The flushing of your personal line could take several minutes to as much as an hour depending on the length and design of your personal service line. It is possible you may need to perform this flushing more than once, but if done correctly, one time will take care of it in most cases.

If you are still experiencing discoloration 24 hours after a flushing or shut down event please contact the Utility department for assistance and/or recommendations. You can reach the Utility Supervisor at [email protected] if you have any further issues.

Also, please email the Town Administrator Melissa Hynes if you would like to be considered for a credit on your next bill for the time you had to run your faucets.

You can reach Melissa at [email protected]

BUSINESS LICENSE RENEWAL APPLICATIONS DUE MARCH 22, 2021

If you own a business in the Town of Round Hill corporate limits, your annual business license renewal application is due to the Town Treasurer by March 22, 2021. The Town Clerk sent out renewal applications last week. If you have not received your renewal application, please email [email protected] to request a copy.

02/26/2021

UPDATE: Water service has been restored as of 11:45 am

PUBLIC NOTICE WATER SERVICE INTERUPTION:

The Utility Staff is attempting to clear blockage/debris in a valve that is located just West of the Newberry Crossing/E. Loudoun/ Evening Star Drive intersection. This will be a large volume flush so the impact to the surrounding area is highly likely. Customers may see dirty water or low water pressure this morning during the flushing. Flushing will occur at a hydrant on Falls Place and one on Newberry Crossing. Town Staff will need to close these roads temporarily for safety reasons to accomplish this task.

01/30/2021

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Please do not pour leftover fats, oils and grease down the drain. Utility Staff have noticed an increase in oil and grease build up in the RH Lift Stations.

WHAT IS A LIFT STATION?

When gravity sewer is not an option - a lift station is an integral part of a sewage collection system. In order for the raw sewage to reach the RH Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), it needs to be efficiently transported to a higher elevation. This can’t happen naturally for obvious reasons – it would defy the laws of gravity and physics. Fortunately, we have wastewater lift stations to help.

Eventually, the raw sewage reaches a storage container referred to as a wet well (see attached photos), which is essentially a holding cell that empties out once it reaches a predetermined level. While in the wet well. Once the wet well is full, a lift station pump will “lift” the sewage upwards using a pressurized sewer force main. Its purpose is to elevate the wastewater to a higher elevation so that it can continue its journey towards the WWTP.

HOW CAN FATS/OILS/GREASE DAMAGE A LIFT STATION?

Fats, Oils & Greases in lift stations create a major problem. The grease obstructs floats and reduces the life of pumps leading to a need for frequent service/replacement. Obstruction by grease is the most prevalent cause of force main backups and sewage overflows. The majority of sewer line blockages are caused by grease build-up as opposed to other debris.

Grease that is poured down the drain accumulates in private plumbing and within sewer lines and may eventually form a complete blockage. When this occurs, wastewater can overflow from manholes onto streets and yards. When the flow of wastewater is interrupted due to a blockage, sewage can back up into homes, causing messy water damage and expensive cleanup.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

You can help prevent the buildup of grease in sewer lines and within the plumbing of your own home. Dispose of all cooking grease in the trash instead of pouring it down the drain. Please follow this 3-step method:

POUR IT : Pour all grease into an empty can (let grease cool; hot grease can cause a serious burn).
COOL IT : Store the covered can in your refrigerator or freezer.
TRASH IT : Throw away the can when full of grease into the trash.

A Message from the Round Hill United Methodist Church Food Pantry:

There is a trailer in the corner of the gravel parking lot behind the Round Hill United Methodist Church in Round Hill. The trailer houses our Food Pantry, which has been serving Round Hill/Western Loudoun neighbors for 10 years. The Pantry is 100% volunteer operated and 100% of donations go directly to purchase food and supplies. The ministry provides free, healthy foods, including fresh local produce in season, and eggs from our “church chickens.” As many as thirty-one families (over 100 individuals) visit the Pantry each month. This year, the Round Hill UMC Food Pantry distributed over 15,000 pounds of food through the end of November.

We understand that it is very difficult and humbling to ask for help. Many people suffer silently when divorce, job loss, unexpected financial or health emergencies occur. But you’re not alone. Whether someone needs help for a week or a month or even longer, the Round Hill UMC Food Pantry is there to lend a helping hand. All people seeking food assistance are treated with respect and confidentially. We only ask your name, your situation, how to contact you, and how we can help.

The Pantry is open on the third weekend of each month, Saturday - Monday. There is also a Blessings Box located in front of the Pantry. It is stocked with an emergency supply of food for times when the Pantry is closed.

What’s needed most:
• Canned fruit
• Breakfast cereal
• Canned tuna, salmon, chicken
• Rice
• Cooking oil
• Pasta sauce (please, no glass jars)
• Canned diced tomatoes and tomato sauce
• Nut butters and jelly
• Taco kits
• Canned soups, stew and chili

Whether you are called to donate or seek help, just ask. Here’s how to contact the pantry:

The Mayor & Council of Round Hill want to send a big thank you to the Round Hill Utility Staff for their hard work in the "below freezing" temperatures, for over 6 hours today, on the Airmont Road waterline break (find the break, make the repair and cover the waterline). Thank you!!!!

EMERGENCY WATER OUTAGE TO LAKE RIDGE AND BLUFFS:

There is a water line break near the intersection of Hayman Lane and Airmont Road. Crews need to shut water off (to the Southern Neighborhoods) to patch the line. Staff will update this FB post to give a timeframe for water service to return (estimate 3 hours).

Staff does want to remind residents to watch out for ice on Airmont Road (water freezing from the line break). Crews are getting ice melt to put on the road but in the meantime, please be careful!

UPDATE ON WATER OUTAGE:

Yesterday (1-11-21) there was a planned water outage during the installation of a new water main valve. This outage was planned for only 30 homes. However, during construction Town Utility Staff had to shut off additional valves to allow for a successful installation of the new water main valve. This resulted in roughly 400 homes losing access to water for about 6 hours. Please note that the water was not shut off completely, the water pressure was only lowered to allow for the required work. As a result of the low water pressure, water could not reach residents in Lake Point and Newberry Crossing. The Town has received questions about the need for a 'Boil Water Notice.' Please be advised that this notice was not necessary because the Utility Staff followed all appropriate disinfection protocols during the installation and no foreign containments were introduced into the system. Full Water Service resumed by 7 pm last night (1-12-2020). If you have any additional questions, please call 540-338-4772

Please follow this post for any additional updates.
