1217

OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – Boil Water Advisory West Virginia American Water has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for customers in the area of Oak Hill, including the following streets: part of Prudence Road, Edgewood Hills Road, Ann Street, Nina Street, North Errington Road, South Errington Road, Prudence Loop, Pluto Hill, Vista Lane, Harvey Hill, Tessa Lane and Phillips Road.

The advisory follows several water main breaks, which crews are working to repair as quickly as possible. Estimated restoration time is 8:30 p.m.

Customers are asked to 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, we will be collecting water quality samples in the area of the outage. You will receive another message from West Virginia American Water letting you know when this advisory is lifted.

For more information, contact our customer service center at 1-800-685-8660.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to ensure the integrity of the system and the quality of the water.
