On 11/16/2023 work is being done on a water line on Rabbit Hill Rd. and Northview Rd. The US EPA and WV Bureau of Public Health require Public Water Systems to notify the public when water distribution lines have gone dry in an affected area to alert them of possible contamination. Water lines will be flushed and samples will be collected and tested to insure the water replenishing the effected system is disinfected and in compliance with the US EPA Bacteriological Regulations. Areas affected by this notice include all businesses and residents of Northview Rd. and Rabbit Hill Rd., as well as, any other customers who lost water pressure in this area.
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. If you live in the affected area listed above bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, and washing dishes, bathing and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Disinfection will be verified as soon as possible and the boil water notice will be lifted through the local media notification.
On 11/16/2023 a repair to a water line began on Rabbit Hill Rd. After repairs are completed the lines will be thoroughly flushed and refilled. Following the refilling of the water lines, samples will be collected and analyzed. Results of the tests will become available no sooner than 18 hours after being collected. Once the results have been verified as bacteria free another public notification will be issued lifting this boil water notice.
