West Virginia Department of the Health and Human Resources Bureau for Public
Health’s Office of Laboratory Services has initial test results back on the
drinking water or what is commonly called “the treated water” from the Lincoln
PSD and City of St. Albans Water System.
tests indicated that the water values were in line with what is routinely seen
and show no abnormalities or concerns at this time. The foam substance is
highly insoluble and is thought to remain on the surface of the water and would
be caught in the filtration system at the water plant.
is reassuring to us that the preliminary test results mean water at both
Lincoln PSD and City of St. Albans water system remains safe,” said Dr. Rahul
Gupta, Commissioner of the Bureau for Public Health and State Health
Officer. “We have notified both water systems to resume treatment of
water as normal and residents should continue to use their water.”
