The City of Winchester and the Virginia Department of Health are closely monitoring Winchester’s water supply.

This response follows the emergence of the Harmful Algae Bloom on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.

The water is deemed safe to drink currently but it will continue to be monitored.

Harmful algae blooms can contaminate the water with cyanotoxins and anatoxin-a.

Previously, the city improved their process for removing cyanotoxins, and they are evaluating the levels of anatoxin-a at a laboratory.
