If you live in the Bluefield area of West Virginia, you may need to boil your water.
According to West Virginia American Water, a precautionary boil water advisory has been issued for some 200 customers in the following areas: Rt. 19/Princeton Avenue from the old Bluefield-Princeton Bridge to Bowman Street, Dexter Street, Virginia Avenue, Franklin Street, Green Street, Ronceverte Street, Myrtle Street, Bowman Street, Talbot Street and Jackson Street.
WVAW says the advisory is due to a water main being shut down while crews work to replace a valve. Customers should expect a disruption of service for approximately four to six hours until those repairs are finished.
If you live or work in any of those affected areas, you should boil your water until further notice.
