The massive power outages in Virginia and other states resulting from the June 29, 2012, derecho had significant water-related impacts, including loss of well-pumping capacity by many rural residents, public waterworks losing power and being unable to provide adequately treated water, and wastewater-treatment plants losing power or being on reduced power and being unable to treat wastewater fully. Following are links to articles and other information sources on water-related impacts of the storm; the Water Central News Grouper will add others as we find them.
