Part of South Charleston under boil advisory until further notice

All residents north of John Street must boil their water until further notice.

The village of South Charleston issued a boil advisory Thursday afternoon as a precaution following a disruption in water service.

Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute, then cool before use, or use bottled water. This should be used for all drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth and washing dishes.

The village said there is no evidence the water supply is contaminated, but that it is possible so the advisory was issued as a precaution.

For more information, call the town hall at 937-462-8888.
