UPDATE 4-14-18: This boil water advisory has been lifted.
Due to a line break, although no contamination has been confirmed, Paintsville Utilities has voluntarily issued a boil water advisory for our customers along RT 40 East, beginning at Chet Tackett Hollow and continuing to the Martin County Line, including all hollows and side roads in between, except RT 1596. This advisory is being issued as a precautionary measure and is in effect until further notice.
Paintsville Utilities is advising all customers in the affected areas to boil their water before using it for drinking, making ice, cooking, washing dishes, brushing teeth or food preparation. Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for three minutes, and let it cool before using. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
