Lincoln County water woes

Posted: Updated:
LINCOLN COUNTY, WV -

Nearly 2,100 Lincoln Public Service Department water customers were at one time, without water in the past three weeks. As of Tuesday, Feb. 11, around 200 people still had no water. 

"You go to the faucet and it's a 50/50 chance of this," said Mark Mitchell of Yawkee, WV.

He was without water throughout the day Saturday into Sunday. He also lost water Monday morning. Service was restored later that afternoon.

Over the weekend Mitchell used his well to produce water for himself and his family. 

"It's usable water, but it's just for baths and dishes," said Mitchell. 

As for the Lincoln PSD, it hoped to have a resolution by the end of Tuesday night.
