Updated 3 years ago
Huntington, W.Va. (July 15 2014) – West Virginia American Water has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for customers on 9th Avenue from 20th Street to 22nd Street and on 21st Street from 8th Avenue to 9th Avenue in Huntington. The advisory was issued following a water main break, which West Virginia American Water crews are working to repair. Estimated restoration time is approximately 6 p.m. Customers may experience low water pressure or no water until repairs are complete. Customers will be notified of the advisory through the media.

Once service is restored, affected customers should boil their water before consumption until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms that may be present in the water. Customers are asked to bring water used for drinking, cooking, bathing, showering and brushing teeth to a full boil for a minimum of one minute, then cool before use.
