Boil water advisory slated for Monday in South Point

Published 12:00am Sunday, September 16, 2012

SOUTH POINT — Due to a water line repair on Monday, water will be off from approximately 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. along Fourth Street West from Eisenhower Street to Commerce Drive in the Village of South Point.

The South Point Water Department is advising residents in this area to vigorously boil, for at least one minute, any water used for drinking (including water used to make ice), cooking or oral hygiene.

The South Point Water Department has no evidence at this time that the water system is contaminated. The possibility does exist and the agency is issuing this advisory as a precaution.

If no further notice is given after Thursday then the samples are normal and the water is safe.
