Parkersburg Utility Board lifts boil advisory

PARKERSBURG — The Parkersburg Utility Board has lifted a boil water advisory for customers in the Emerson Avenue area.

A water main line broke Friday on Emerson Avenue off Stella Street, prompting the utility to recommend customers north of Stella Street to 5106 Emerson Ave. and Paddock Green Drive boil water before using it.

On Saturday afternoon, the utility announced the damaged lines had been repaired and pressure was restored to the distribution system. Lines were flushed and samples tested before the all-clear was given.
