Update: Boil Water Notice near Industrial Park LIFTED
Last modified on January 29th, 2022 at 07:50 am
Update as of 1/29, 7:45 a.m.: This Boil Water Notice has been lifted. Lab testing found no contamination in the sample.
As a result of loss of pressure on a water main during repair of a leak, a Boil Water Notice has been issued for certain water customers in First and Second Ward, near Elkins Industrial Park. The earliest laboratory testing can be completed and the notice lifted is Saturday, January 29.
The area of the Boil Water Notice is bounded by the Tygart Valley River, South Davis Avenue, 15th Street, and Industrial Park Road. See map below.
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. Samples cannot be taken until the leak has been repaired and service has been restored. Samples can only be submitted during business hours.

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.
