Boil water advisory issued in South Point

Published 1:31 pm Monday, April 25, 2016

Due to a water line break Monday, the South Point Water Department is advising residents on Third Street East, Second Street West and all streets turning of these streets from Ferry Street to Hooper Drive, by McMean’s Pharmacy, 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 is contaminated. However, the possibility does exist and the department is issuing this advisory as precaution. If no further notice is given by Wednesday, then the samples are normal and the water is safe.
