UPDATE 6/3/18 – The advisory listed below has been lifted.
Due to a line break, although no contamination has been confirmed, Paintsville Utilities has voluntarily issued a boil water advisory for their customers on RT 40 West in the Oil Springs area, beginning at the intersection with RT 825 and continuing to the Magoffin County line, including all hollows and side roads in between. The 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.
