Water Distribution

West Virginia American Water announced Monday they would be discontinuing their bulk water distribution service two days early.

In a press release, the company said the forecast is to blame for the early end to the service which was planned to end Wednesday. Bulk water tankers in previous weeks have been unable to distribute water when temperatures reach freezing.
