A boil water advisory has been issued for the Town of Pratt, WV and other areas.

According to a news release issued by West Virginia American Water, a precautionary boil water advisory has been issued for 500 customers living in the areas of Riverside, Paint Creek, Upper Kanawha Valley, and the Town of Pratt.

According to the news release issued by West Virginia American Water, the advisory was issued after extensive flushing in the area caused a water storage tank to drain. 

Affected customers should boil their water before consumption until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms that may be present in the water. Customers are asked to bring water used for drinking, cooking, bathing and brushing teeth to a full boil for a minimum of one minute, then cool before use.

West Virginia American Water also recommends the following steps:

-Throw away beverages and ice cubes if made with tap water;

-Keep boiled water in the refrigerator for drinking;

-Provide pets with boiled water after cooling;

-Do not use home filtering devices in place of boiling or using bottled water; most home water filters will not provide adequate protection from microorganisms;

- Use only boiled water to treat minor injuries.

 

According to the news release, once the system recovers, West Virginia American Water will be collecting additional water quality samples in the area of the outage.
