MOUNT VERNON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Eastern Rockcastle Water Association has issued a boil water advisory for all customers in the Brush Creek and Big Cave area.
Customers should bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for three minutes, then let it cool before using, or should use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice.
The company says the advisory was issued as a precautionary action, and can only be lifted with the approval of the KY Division of Water.
ABC 36 will update this story once the boil water advisory is lifted.
