Boil water advisory issued for some WVAW Minden customers

OAK HILL — West Virginia American Water has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for approximately 100 residential customers in Minden in the company’s New River system in Fayette County.

The affected area includes County Route 17 from the bottom of Minden Hill to the old bar (including all side roads) and County Route 17 out to and including the area of Rock Lick. The advisory has been issued following a project to replace fire hydrants and sections of pipe in the area.

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.

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.

For more information, contact West Virginia American Water’s customer service center at 1-800-685-8660.
