Residents in Huntington need to boil their water until further notice as a water sample from well #5 tested positive for E.Coli.

Residents need to boil water before drinking.  Make sure you bring water to a rolling boil, let it boil for 1 minutes, then let it cool before using it. 

Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

You need to use boiled or bottled water for drinking, making ice, preparing food, and washing dishes until further notice.

The Huntington Water Department is investigation to determine the source of the contamination.
