Danville Utilities logo

The Danville Utilities Department has released an expanded water quality report that provides information on regulated compounds, the cleanup of coal ash and sediment from the Dan River, and the upcoming trihalomethane reduction project, as well as a summary of water quality for 2013.

The report also provides answers to frequently asked questions, such as steps customers can take to remove chlorine odor from their tap water.

“Most customers already have received the report in the mail, but some did not receive it due relocation or other issues,” said Barry Dunkley, division director of water and wastewater treatment. “We want this report to be available to everyone, so if you did not receive a copy and would like to get one, please call Alan Johnson at (434) 799-6473, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.”

The report also is available online at Access the report by clicking on the first navigation link provided on the left side of the page.

Danville Utilities serves 17,000 households and businesses in the city, and it provides water to the Pittsylvania County Service Authority, Caswell County North Elementary School and the visitor center in Caswell County. The city treats an average of six million gallons of drinking water per day and tests more than 1,700 water samples each month. Danville’s drinking water is tested for more than 100 contaminants, with monitoring exceeding what the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires.

Danville Utilities provides natural gas, water, wastewater and telecommunications services in Danville and distributes electricity to approximately 42,000 customer locations in a 500-square-mile service territory covering Danville, the southern third of Pittsylvania County, and small portions of Henry and Halifax counties.
