Residents Are Living With Brown Water

Posted:

ALPOCA (WVVA)- Residents in the Alpoca and Bud area say they can't bathe or cook with the water they've had.

Brown water has been coming from the faucets for months now, and there's no relief in sight.

Even students at Herndon Consolidated School have to use bottled water and clean their hands with hand sanitizer after using the bathroom.

It's been happening since a flood in 2002 that affected the water system. Right now the area is under a boil water advisory.
