West Virgina American Water has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for about 150 customers in the Poca area.
The affected area includes Route 62 from Silver Street to Poca River (including Poca Middle School), Childers Lane, Oklahoma Street, Center Street, River Street, Poca Circle, Truette Street, Alford Street, Laurel Avenue, Holly Street, Pine Drive, Richard Drive and Brandy Lane.
The advisory was issued after a valve was broken, West Virgina American Water External Affairs Manager Laura Jordan said. The water to those affected areas was to be shut off about 4 p.m. Monday for about five hours while crews work to repair the valve.
Once service is restored, customers should boil their water until further notice.
