Wyoming County residents in several communities were issued a boil water advisory alert.
Residents in Jackson Hill, Bowman’s Bottom and East Pineville should boil their water because of a problem at the Pineville Municipal Water Plant, according to a news release from the Pineville Municipal Water Works.
Officials estimated the problem would be resolved in about a week. They advised residents to boil water for one minute, and let it cool before using. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing and food preparation until further notice.
