CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia American Water has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for about 125 customers around Bendview Drive in the South Hills area of Charleston.

The advisory follows a water main break, which crews repaired Wednesday afternoon.

Affected customers should boil their water before consumption until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms that may be present in the water. Customers are asked to bring water used for drinking, cooking, bathing and brushing teeth to a full boil for a minimum of one minute, then cool before use.
