Kenova water customers under boil water notification

Aug. 08, 2014 @ 01:09 PM

KENOVA — A water main leak along Valley View Drive has caused an interruption of service to some customers in parts of Kenova.

The Kenova Municipal Water System has issued a boil water advisory notification to residents along Valley View Drive and Buffalo Creek Road. The notification also has been issued to Buffalo elementary and middle schools and Playmates Daycare on Buffalo Creek.

Water system employees have repaired the line, and water is being tested for contamination.

Residents in the affected areas should not drink their water without bringing it to a boil for at least one minute. Boiled and bottled water should be used for consumption, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing and food preparation until further notice.
