Tests show presence of diesel fuel in water

Posted by Terry Alexander

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Test results confirm the presence of diesel fuel in the water of one Henrico county neighborhood.

Nine neighbors on Gibsons Landing Drive reported contaminated water last week.

The health department put them under a "do not drink" order, and the county has been investigating ever since.

There's no immediate word on how diesel entered the water supply, but neighbors believe it has something to do with a water line repair that took place that same week.
