PRESS RELEASE

May 27, 2016

Sections of Vienna are able to use tap water for cooking and drinking. The City of Parkersburg has added two booster pumps to existing lines and have hooked them to the lower Vienna area. Areas from 23rd Street in Vienna to the Mall will be affected.

According to the Public Service District, booster pumps were installed yesterday and the lines were flushed. The areas from the Mall to 23rd Street are no longer under the “Do Not Use the Water” advisory.

Sanitarians have visited the restaurants in this area that were using alternative water sources to recommend that they flush their lines and change the filters on drink dispensers, ice machines and any other equipment or appliance that have a filter on it.

Based on the EPA findings, the Mid-Ohio Valley Health still recommends that the permitted facilities in the other areas of Vienna and Boaz take precaution with water to be used for human consumption. We are recommending the use of other potable water sources. (ex. bottled water, packaged water)

Boiling the water is not an effective measure. For those restaurants, hotels and citizens still under the Advisory, the recommendation includes:

Water used in food preparation
Water used in ice machines
Water used in drink machines, coffee and tea makers.
Water used fruit and vegetable misters in retail stores.
Washing fruits and vegetables
Drinking Fountains

We recommend hotels provide bottle water to be used for brushing of teeth.

This does not include: Water used for washing utensils and equipment in three bowl sinks, in dishwashers, and handwashing.

Water distribution is still available and will continue until all residents and businesses are able to use city water. A tankard is available at the Vienna Utility Board on 60th street. Bring your own containers for the water. Bottled water is available at John Manville location on River Road, Grand Central Mall near Sears and also at the 60th Street location. In addition, Family Carpet in Boaz will distribute bottled water on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Water is available in gallon jugs as well as individual bottles. Mayor Randy Rapp is encouraging residents to recycle their bottles. Bins will be available to citizens upon request.

The Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department has established a Vienna/Boaz Water Issue Information toll free phone line that people can call for answers to their questions. That number is 1-888-550-6797.
