Boil water note

originally posted on 27, 2016


West Virginia American Water crews will be installing a new water main near the entrance of Glade Springs Resort Monday, which will temporarily impact water service to approximately 450 customers within the resort property. Work will begin at 8 a.m. and should be completed by noon. As a result, customers in the area may experience a temporary disruption in water service or experience low water pressure, and discolored water may be present immediately after water is restored. Once the installation of the new water main is complete, crews will be flushing hydrants in the area to remove any possible discoloration that may be generated. Customers will be notified of this work in advance through the company’s CodeRED emergency notification system.

Wilderness PSD has issued a boil water advisory for its customers on and off Runa Road due to a main line break.

Raleigh County PSD – Fitzpatrick has also issued an advisory for Pack Mountain.

Customers are advised to bring all water to a full rolling boil, let it boil for one minute and let cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
