South Point issues boil water advisory

Published 9:44am Monday, March 11, 2013

Due to a water line break on Sunday, the South Point Water Department is advising residents on the following streets to vigorously boil, for at least one minute, any water used for drinking (including water used to make ice), cooking or oral hygiene:

Fourth Street E. from N. Kenova Road to the Railroad Bridge and all streets turning off Fourth Street in that area.

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

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