A boil water advisory has been issued for several areas in Crab Orchard in Raleigh County due to a broken main water line.
The advisory is effective immediately for Pebblestone Drive, Cobblestone Court and Moonstone Circle in the Stone Villa subdivision, according to a news release from the Beckley Water Co.
Officials advise to bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Beckley Water crews are working to reestablish normal conditions and we will inform customers when they no longer need to boil water.
For more information, contact Beckley Water Co. customer service at 304-255-5121 or 304-763-2691. General guidelines on ways to lessen the health risk are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline 1-800-426-4791.
