Ryan Watts, superintendent for the Ironton Water Treatment Plant, issued a release saying the treatment plant will not be pumping during that time.

In addition, a spill at Kraton Polymers near Belpre will “not be harmful to our source of water, as it will be significantly diluted to harmless levels,” the release stated.
