Communities put on boil water advisory after pump station is damaged in Fayette County
The Victor pump station was damaged overnight causing the water storage tank to run out of water.
Now the communities of Victor, Lansing and areas have to boil their water.
West Virginia American Water has stationed potable water tankers Class VI/Adventures on the Gorge in Lansing and at the Victor Post Office on Midland Trail in Victor for customers impacted by the water outage.
Customers should bring their own containers to fill.
West Virginia American Water crews continue working to install a temporary pump station today while the damaged station is repaired.
The temporary pump is anticipated to be in operation by early evening to begin re-pressurizing the system and refilling the nearby water tank.
Once service is restored, a precautionary boil water advisory will remain in effect.
