Water Conservation Order Remains In Effect In Weirton

WEIRTON W. Va. (KDKA) — Residents of the Weirton community in West Virginia remain under a water conservation and boil water order after problems at the city’s water treatment plant.

Authorities declared a state of emergency there on Friday after a major failure of the water transmission system at the Weirton Area Water Board Treatment Plant.

Crews have been working to fix the issues and get water flowing again.

Meanwhile, authorities have set up water stations for residents.

According to the City of Weirton’s website, those sites include:

  • Weirton Fire Department Station (behind Millsop Community Center)
  • Gilson Avenue Fire Station (Pennsylvania Avenue & Cove Road)
  • Marland Heights Fire Station (Brightway & Euclid Avenue)
  • County Road Fire Station (WV Route 2 North)
  • Weir High School Campus

Officials say a 10 gallon limit per individual has been established and residents should have their own containers.
