Have you wondered why your water pressure was so low?

Thanks to EK, aka Spacecat, for the tip:

The water main break in Government road is still affecting many in the East End. The DPW is working on it. If you have an issue, please go ahead and report it by calling 3-1-1.

Several water main breaks caused outages in Church Hill and Fulton since around midnight on Saturday. Government Rd is closed from the gas station by Gillies creek to Admiral Gravelly/Jennie Scher Rd, causing significant detours. Water is still running all over the street two days later at Jennie Scher Rd, though at least we have water back as of early Sunday morning. Gravel and mud everywhere on the Government Rd corridor.

This was originally reported two days ago by ABC8,

A water main break shut down part of Government Road on Saturday night. Richmond Police say it will be closed for “an extended period of time.”
The road is closed between the intersections of Jennie Sheer Road and Stony Run Road, police say.
The Department of Public Works has been notified of the water main break and is on scene to repair it, according to Richmond Police.
