UPDATE: Boil water advisory lifted in Wyoming Co. community


BUD (WVVA) - A boil water advisory issued for Alpoca Water customers on Jan. 2 has been lifted.

A problem with the amount of chlorine in the water initially prompted the advisory. According to a news release issued on Tuesday, the problem has been corrected.


BUD (WVVA) - Residents in the Bud/Alpoca area of Wyoming County are currently under a boil water advisory due to a lack of chlorine in the water.

Herndon Consolidated Elementary School is also affected by the advisory.

Several parents in the affected area had contacted WVVA News to report that water fountains had been blocked off at the school and bottled water was being used for hand washing and meal preparation.

A message left at the Wyoming County Board of Education was not immediately returned.

Rhesa Shrewsbury, Secretary of Alpoca Water Works, tells WVVA News that crews worked to fix the problem Wednesday evening, however it could take several days for tests to determine if the issue has been resolved.
