Boil water advisory issued for parts of South Point

Published 10:22 am Tuesday, January 13, 2015

Due to a water line break this morning 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: Sixth, Seventh, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, Linden, Auburn, Nelson, Park, Center, Margaret, Dean, Keith, Shannon, Washington, High, Alma and Fairview.

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 this coming Friday, then the samples are normal and the water is safe.
