West Union residents are being advised to drink bottled water until further notice.
City officials issued the warning Sunday morning after the primary water main broke in West Union late Saturday night.
Supervisors from West Union Utilities have reported that city water is NOT SAFE IF BOILED. Residents should consume ONLY bottled water until at least Wednesday (Jan. 15, 2020).
