Boyd County residents awaiting return of water service after main break on Monday
Wsaz is reporting that over 4,000 customers are still awaiting the return of water service as of early Wednesday morning. A water main break occurred on the corner of Carter Avenue and 25th street. Officials say the break drained the city's water storage tanks leaving just several feet of water inside. The cold temperatures are being blamed for causing lines throughout the area to break. The city of Ashland will distribute water today beginning at 8am at Central Park and at Ashland Community & Technical College's Oakview Road parking lot. A boil water advisory continues for affected areas in Ashland. Officials are asking everyone in the area to conserve water, once service is restored, this will allow tanks to refill more quickly.
