Water Main Repaired on Tilden Ave. Boil Water Notice Still in Effect

The water main break on Tilden Ave. has been repaired. The boil water notice is still in effect and will be lifted once test results prove the water is potable. The boil notice applies to 142 Tilden Ave. and all properties on Tilden Ave. to the west of 142 Tilden Ave. The boil water notice also applies to 282 West Main St. as this property receives water from the water main on Tilden Ave. (updated 12/9/22)

The Richmond Water Resources department provides you with safe, high-quality water and tertiary wastewater treatment.

Richmond’s water has been rated one of the top ten best in the nation twice. Richmond’s wastewater treatment facility won a 1997 national award for outstanding operations and maintenance. Our primary mission is to protect public health and the environment.

The Water and Wastewater team at Richmond’s Water Resources Department received national recognition in the April 2022 edition of Treatment Plant Operator magazine. Below are links to the online version of the story and the magazine version (the magazine version contains a good fish story that the online version does not have). Congrats and a big thank you to Kendall and his team for all that they do for Richmond.
