Boil Water in Fifth Ward
Last modified on December 2nd, 2021 at 09:41 am
Update as of Dec. 2, 9 a.m.: The Boil Water Notice in Fifth Ward has been lifted after lab testing found no contamination.
As a result of loss of pressure on a water main caused by a leak, a Boil Water Notice has been issued for water customers in Fifth Ward in the area bounded by Eleventh Street, South Davis Avenue, and the Tygart River. (See map at the bottom of this post.) The earliest update concerning this notice will be on the morning of Thursday, Dec. 2.
Boil Water Notices are issued out of an abundance of caution because positive pressure has been lost and the possibility of contamination exists, not because contamination has been detected. The presence or absence of contamination must be confirmed by an independent lab through a testing process that requires at least 24 hours after delivery of a sample.

Notification will be sent out when the Boil Water Notice is lifted. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience during this time.
