GORDONSVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Shenandoah Crossing Country Club residents say they are left without safe drinking or bathing water after new construction contaminated the water supply. 

UPDATE 08/20/23: As of Aug. 20, residents received notice that, for certain lots, the do not use water order has been lifted. However, neighbors on the "safe lots" reported large pieces of sediment and discoloration in their tap water.  

On the evening of Aug. 16 Shenandoah Crossing Country Club residents received a notice that their water will be turned off due to contamination that first occurred on Aug. 8. 

"While cleaning up from dinner, I happened to see my phone and I saw that don't not use the water, boil water alert,” Resident Linda Seidel said. 

On Aug. 14, the management of the neighborhood received a call reporting a discoloration, prompting an investigation into a sewer connection recently made by a home builder. 

This resulted in finding a cross-connection between a homeowner's sewer line and an active water line. For nearly two days, approximately 100 homes and restaurants were using contaminated water. 

As of Aug. 18, residents are still advised to avoid any contact with the tap water, leaving the neighborhood frustrated. 

“It's just been very inconvenient. Not being able to take showers, I have a two-and-a-half-year-old son. I can’t bathe him. I have to go to family houses to get stuff like that to go," said Kameron Musselman.

Not only has there been a major inconvenience but there’s also a lack of communication. Now neighbors are connecting that many of them were sick with nausea or stomach problems within the past two weeks. 

“It’s very frustrating and upsetting. I have a wife and three kids and as of last week all of them have been experiencing upset stomach, nausea, fever, chills and severe diarrhea," said Resident Mr. Jones.

The management company has been providing about two gallons of water to each household and has opened the resort showers for neighbors to temporarily use. But that is not enough. 

“It’s very discomforting, it’s upsetting. We just want answers. That is all we really want," Mr. Jones said. 

Bluegreen Vacations, Shenandoah Crossing, and Ascend Resort Collection management did not respond to a request for comment.
