If you live in certain parts of Lincoln and Wayne Counties in West Virginia, you need to boil your water.
The Branchland-Midkiff Public Service District has issued a boil water advisory for residents along Lick Fork and Rt. 10 to 14 Mile Mountain, as well as Route 37 of Lincoln County. Residents along Kiahsville in Wayne County are also under the advisory.
If you live in either of those areas, you are advised to boil your water for at least one minute before drinking or cooking with it. This advisory remains in effect until further notice.
