Pomeroy, OH residents found they have no water running into their homes after a valve failure at the city's main water plant.

We spoke to the fire department in  Pomeroy, OH and they tell wowktv.com originally a valve failed on Sunday Dec. 15, 2013. Once that failure occurred the water was to run through a second valve. Unfortunately, the second valve was left open. The city's main water system then drained.

Most of the residents without water reside in the Breezy Heights area of Pomeroy, OH. 

Repairs to the water system will take most of the afternoon and evening.

Residents are advised to boil their water.
