Marshall University's Huntington campus not affected by Charleston water emergency

Updated 4 years ago
Marshall University's main campus in Huntington has not been affected by the water supply emergency centered in the Charleston area, and classes will begin as scheduled on that campus Monday, Jan. 13. Huntington is served by a public water source that is different from the ones affected by the emergency advisory issued Thursday.

Residence halls, classrooms, libraries and offices on the Huntington campus are operating normally and ready to accommodate students as they begin the spring semester, said Matt Turner, Marshall's chief of staff.

Marshall also has a campus in South Charleston that was closed on Friday due to the "Do Not Use" notice issued by West Virginia American Water. Turner said university officials will wait for further information from public safety officials this weekend to determine whether the South Charleston campus can be reopened on Monday.
Marshall's facilities in Hurricane, Beckley and Point Pleasant were not affected by the emergency.
