Pea Ridge Boil Water Advisory Issued
Sunday, August 10, 2014 - 17:13 Updated 10 weeks ago
on Pinecrest Drive, Liberty Lane, Grady Drive, Dogwood Place, Heavenly
Place, and Pinecrest lane streets. The advisory follows a water main break,
which West Virginia American Water crews are working to repair as quickly
as possible. Customers will be notified by media.
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 and brushing teeth to a full boil for a minimum of one minute, then
cool before use.
West Virginia American Water also recommends the following steps:
· Throw away beverages and ice cubes if made with tap water;
· Keep boiled water in the refrigerator for drinking;
· Provide pets with boiled water after cooling;
· Do not use home filtering devices in place of boiling or using
bottled water; most home water filters will not provide
adequate protection from microorganisms;
· Use only boiled water to treat minor injuries.
Once the system recovers, West Virginia American Water will be collecting
additional water quality samples in the area of the outage. For more
