CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Jeff Morris) -- There will be no bulk water distribution in Kanawha County Thursday due to the extreme weather conditions, Kanawha County Manager Jennifer Sayre said.

Walmart Parking Lot – Quincy
Shawnee Park – Institute (No tanker Tuesday)
Old Big Sandy Parking Lot – Cross Lanes

Bulk water tankers and buffaloes will remain at these locations daily until 5 p.m., due to temperatures that are expected to drop below freezing nightly, Kanawha County Manager Jennifer Sayre said.

Bulk water will also be available at Shawnee Park in Institute Wednesday through Friday. A mechanical problem with the tanker has to be repaired then filled in Huntington redeployed on Wednesday, Sayre said.

The bulk tankers and buffaloes are provided by West Virginia American Water and are being filled in Montgomery and Huntington.

If temperatures are below freezing in the morning hours, it is possible that the water tankers and buffaloes will be delayed.
