WEST POINT, GA (WTVM) – Water service has been restored in West Point, but a boil water advisory is still underway following a major water main break.
According to a West Point official, at 5:30 a.m. on Thursday a water operator noticed more water was being consumed than he could keep up with, and utility crews discovered a leak and opened the hole.
"The City apologizes for any inconvenience during this time and repairs are in progress," the City of West Point stated in a Facebook post.
The city is urging residents to boil water for three to five minutes and allow it to cool before consuming it.
