Conserve Water Advisory for Montgomery and Cedar Grove Water Systems


The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Bureau for Public Health today announced water intakes in Montgomery and Cedar Grove have been closed following a train derailment that occurred in Fayette County.
The train was carrying crude oil, some of which has spilled into the Kanawha River.
While the intakes are closed, customers are urged to conserve water. The Montgomery water system is part of West Virginia American Water Co.
