Residents in Greenup, KY and Ironton, OH experiencing water woes

Posted: Updated:

Officials with the Greenup Water District and Mayor Meadows are asking their customers to conserve water as much as possible. They say the tanks are extremely low and that water for fire protection is critical.

According to Greenup County 911, a bulk water supply is located at the Greenup Fire Department, at 1110 Walnut St. People are being asked to bring their own containers.  However, Greenup 911 says this water is only for boiling purposes.  Do not consume the water.

Greenup 911 says that people living in the Wurtland area can get water at the fire station until 7:30 p.m.

Residents in Ironton, Ohio, from Commerce Drive to Coal Grove city limits are being asked to boil their water.

Officials with Ironton's Water Treatment Plant say there was a water main break and while there is no evidence of water contamination they still advise to boil your water for one minute before you use it for drinking, cooking or brushing your teeth.
