If you’ve experienced low pressure, your service has been interrupted or discoloration of your water has occurred, do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute and let it cool before using. Bottled water can be used for brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing and food preparation until further notice. Boiling your water kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Samples will be collected for bacteriological testing and results will be determined in 24 hours. Please contact the water treatment plant at 304-366-1461 after 2 p.m. Thursday to determine if the boil-water advisory has been lifted.
