CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A water company had to delay repairs to a water main and retracted a statement for Charleston residents to limit water use.

The Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/1HNfEGZ ) reports West Virginia American Water sent a request Wednesday morning to its customers to restrict water usage while the company made repairs to a 36-inch water main. A sinkhole appeared in the area May 18.

The company decided to reschedule the repairs for next week and said residents are no longer asked to conserve water Thursday and Friday.

When repairs do resume, West Virginia American Water says customers will be asked to voluntarily limit non-essential water use during a 24-hour period to alleviate demand on the system.

As of now, the repairs are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday next week.
