Boil Water Advisory

UPDATE (6/7/2019)

The boil water advisory that was issued for the entire town of Fairview on May 30 has been lifted, the West Virginia Health Department announced.

The boil water was issued after positive results of E-Coli were found in the town’s water system. This caused Fairview schools to close for two days. 

The advisory was lifted after a total of 15 samples were gathered, all of which showed no presence of E-Coli, according to the state health department.

The entire town of Fairview in Marion County has been put under a boil water advisory, according the West Virginia Health Department.

A representative from the health department said the advisory is effective immediately and did not give any information as to when it might be lifted.

The reason for the advisory is that the health department needs to take samples of Fairview’s water system, as the previous samples needed to be replaced.

Anyone with questions or concerns regarding the boil water advisory may call 304-366-3360 for more information.
