WOODBRIDGE, Va. – Crews are working to repair a watermain break on Golansky Boulevard near Prince William Parkway and a BJs Wholesale Club in Woodbridge.
A rusted bolt valve is the cause of the leak. Virginia American Water maintains the water lines and says drivers should avoid the area today.
Here is what the company is saying through statements on social media:
Crews have identified a rusted bolt valve as the cause of the leak. They will make a temporary repair to get water back on by 12:00 noon today to the businesses affected, and then they’ll come back tonight after closing to make the permanent repair.
Access to the plaza is available through several entrances, just not at the Noblewood and Golansky entrance, which will take all day to repair.
Here is what the company stated after first getting word of the break:
Dale City Customers: We are on scene at Golansky Blvd and Noble Pond Ct near PW Parkway to address a watermain break. Please avoid that intersection today. Breaks like these usually take about 6-8 hours to fix, depending on severity, location and other factors.
There will likely be some outages in the vicinity while we address the break. We will post info here as we receive it.
