MARTIN COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- A fourth boil water has been issued in Martin County within the last two days.
The latest advisory was issued Tuesday for around 45 customers in the Lovely area, from railroad bridge to the Evans Hill pump station.
Tuesday’s advisory comes after contractors broke a main water line, according to Martin County Water.
Following such an event, the potential exists for bacteriological contamination of the water supply; therefore this boil water advisory has been issued precautionary measure. Until further notice, boil all water used for drinking and cooking, bringing the water to a rolling boil for three (3) minutes before using.
This advisory will remain in effect until the situation has been corrected, and test results have shown the water to be of an acceptable quality.
