Update – The boil water advisory for RT 40 W from Hurricane Branch to the mouth of Grassy has been lifted.
BOIL WATER ADVISORY
Due to a line break, although no contamination has been confirmed, Paintsville Utilities has voluntarily issued a boil water advisory for RT 40W from Hurricane Branch to the mouth of Grassy Creek. Grassy Creek is not included in the advisory.
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.
