UTILITY ISSUED

BOIL WATER NOTICE

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

6-14-18

Beckley Water Company has issued a precautionary boil water advisory effective June 14, 2018 for Orchard Avenue from Porter Street to the end of Orchard Avenue.  Also included are Wood, Alvin, Marion and Avon Street and Mankin, Glenn and Dorcas Avenue.  The area includes all side streets.  This notice is being issued due to planned water system improvements.

CONDITIONS INDICATE THERE IS A CHANCE THE WATER MAY BE CONTAMINATED.  WATER QUALITY TESTING HAS NOT OCCURRED TO CONFIRM OR DENY THE PRESENCE OF CONTAMINATION IN YOUR WATER.

What should I do?

            DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING FIRST.

Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let cool before using, or use bottled water.  Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation until further notice.  Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Beckley Water crews are working to reestablish normal conditions and we will inform our customers when you no longer need to boil your water.  We anticipate resolving the issue as soon as possible.

            Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
