Boil water advisory lifted in Bluefield

Posted:
BLUEFIELD, WV (WVVA) -

The boil water advisory that was issued by West Virginia American Water for the entire Bluefield water system has been lifted. It is now safe for residents to use tap water. 

The advisory was issued on Friday due to reports of discolored water in parts of the system. West Virginia American Water says that the discolored water was the result of a contractor connecting a new water main, which changed the direction and velocity of water in the existing water distribution network, which caused mineral deposits inside the pipes to break loose into the water column.
