BECKLEY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A precautionary Boil Water Advisory has been issued effective immediately by the Beckley Water Company for the Ritter Drive area of Raleigh County.
The advisory was issued Wednesday morning due to a broken main line, and pertains to a number of locations throughout the Ritter Drive area including 762 Ritter Drive, 763 Ritter Drive, 781 Ritter Drive, 784 Ritter Drive, 790 Ritter Drive, 795 Ritter Drive, 810 Ritter Drive, 824 Ritter Drive, 833 Ritter Drive, and 855 Ritter Drive, as well as Deeds Drive, and 103 through 209 Beaver Plaza.
As quality testing has yet to occur to confirm whether the water in the areas is safe for consumption at this time, conditions indicate the possibility of contamination. As such, those who consume the water should not do so without first bringing it to a full boil.
