FLASH: Water non-consumption ban lifted in Whitesburg

WYMT is reporting that the city of Whitesburg has lifted the ban on water consumption. This is good news for both individuals and businesses, especially restaurants, which took a financial hit. Since the weekend, residents were told not to drink the water because it was tainted with petroleum.

I hope to have more details about the lifting of the ban soon.

UPDATE at 6:50pm: Mayor James Wiley Craft and County Judge-Executive Jim Ward just made the official announcement on the radio. There are NO restrictions on usage.

UPDATE at 9:13pm: The state Division of Water is advising customers to "flush pipes for several minutes when they resume water use." Read more here.
