Elkins working on fire service lines

The City of Elkins Water Distribution department is working on a fire service line in the area of Wilson Lumber Company.

Water customers in and around this area may experience discolored water. To clear the water, allow it to run in your bathtub or sink for 20-30 minutes; if your water isn’t clear after this, wait an hour and try it again.

Use caution before doing laundry, especially with light-colored items.

If your laundry becomes stained due to discolored water, you may contact the City of Elkins Water Department at 304-636-6566 or the Operations Division at 304-636-1414 to obtain a chemical to help remove the stains.
