Tangier Island water services restored after water main break

TANGIER ISLAND, Va. – In January, a water main break left Tangier Island without water, according to the Eastern Shore of Virginia 911 Center.

The water was out for a few weeks and on February 13 the Town posted that the water problem was corrected.

Tangier Island residents experienced problems with their drinking water and were told to boil it when consuming. The necessary repairs were made to the system and the storage tank is back to normal capacity.

Bacterial samples were also taken and they came back as bacteria-free, the Town said.
