At the September meeting of the Pamplin Town Council, the September Utilities Report discussed issues with town drinking water wells numbers two and six.

According to the report, a malfunctioning “foot valve” in well two necessitated it be shut down. It was discovered then that well six did not respond and take over automatically as it should.

Investigation revealed a “burnt box” inside the well. Well two is currently being run manually while parts for well six are being procured and repairs made. Once repaired, six will go back online, and two will then be properly repaired and brought back into service.
