Hydrant Flushing Update

Hydrant Flushing will be taking place in the Courtland Royal Village this week.

Being #WinterSaltSmart This Season

Many people purchase de-icing salt and apply it to their roads, sidewalks and driveways when it snows or sleets. While this may seem like the best solution, when the salt melts the snow and the mixture enters storm drains. From here, the salt travels to our streams as untreated, polluted runoff which is harmful to our environment. This includes our drinking water sources, infrastructure like pipes and pumps needed to supply water to our customers.

Winterize Your Home

As temperatures become cooler, it is time to think about home winterization. When temperatures get cold enough, the water can expand and freeze, which puts a great amount of stress on the pipes that contain it. This typically happens to outdoor hose bibs and water supply pipes in unheated areas like basements and garages.

Mowing Activity in Your Area

Loudoun Water currently has crews out in the field mowing our water and sewer utility easements in parts of our service area. Areas include Lenah, Stone Ridge, Lansdowne, Cedar Crest and South Riding.  

There will be additional mowing locations in the coming weeks. If you have any questions about easement mowing in your neighborhood, please contact Customer Relations at 571-291-7880.
