Beechwood Water System Maintenance Activities

The Prince George Public Utilities is planning maintenance activities for the Beechwood Manor water system. These activities will require a reduction in the volume of water storage to allow work crews from Southern Corrosion Tank Care to perform the maintenance.

Therefore, the Prince George Utilities Department is issuing mandatory water use restrictions to assure maximum beneficial use of available water resources for the public welfare. These water use restrictions will not only help maintain the integrity of the system but will also assure adequate water for fire protection. While maintenance is being performed, you may experience lower pressures than normal. This maintenance is anticipated to take 4 to 5 weeks, depending on weather conditions.

The restrictions apply to all customers of the Beechwood Manor, Jordan on the James, and Eagle Preserve Water Systems. THE FOLLOWING WATER USE RESTRICTIONS WILL BE IN EFFECT FROM 5:00 PM ON SUNDAY, APRIL 7, 2019 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

  1. Prohibiting the sprinkling, watering or irrigation of new or established lawns,
  2. Prohibiting washing of motor vehicles (including commercial vehicles) and the outdoor surfaces of all buildings and structures, sidewalks and driveways,
  3. Prohibiting the filling or cleaning of swimming, wading pools, and decorative fountains.

Persons found violating any provision of the restrictions shall be fined, in accordance with County Ordinance, one hundred dollars ($100.00). In the case of a continuing violation, each day’s continuance thereof shall be deemed to be a separate and distinct offense with fines escalating in accordance with Prince George County ordinance.
