HUNTINGTON, WV (WCHS/WVAH) —
West Virginia American Water has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for customers on North Jefferson Drive and Piedmont Heights in the Spring Valley area of Huntington.
The water company said in a news release that the advisory follows a water main break that crews have repaired.
Customers in this area should bring water used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation to a full boil for a minimum of one minute, then cool before use. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms that may be present in the water.
Once the system recovers, the water company will be collecting water quality samples in the area of the outage. For more information, contact our customer service center at 1-800-685-8660.
