Weirton Area Water Board Water Quality Report
Weirton Utility Boil Order Notice Procedure
When a Boil Order Notice is issued, what should I do?
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. If you live in the affected area listed above bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Disinfection will be verified as soon as possible and the boil water notice will be lifted through local media notification.
What happened? What is being done?
Following refilling of the water lines, samples will be collected and analyzed. Results of the test will be available as soon as possible and the notice will be lifted as soon as possible. Verification test results require a minimum of 48 hours before another public notification will be issued lifting this boil water notice.
For more information please contact Sam Stoneking Jr., Chuck Tenaglio, or Scott Klar at 304-797-8566.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example: people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
