Sistersville Mayor Issues Boil Order
DEC. 15, 12:30 a.m. —
According to Sistersville Mayor Bill Rice, a boil order is in effect for the entire city until further notice.
Rice, via his official Facebook page as mayor, reported that the boil order was due to a water leak on Maple Lane.
In a second posting Rice stated that he ordered a city-wide order, due to “the high number of calls all over Sistersville.”
Rice said personnel would later investigate the matter further “to see if we can lift part of the town.” However, “to be safe right now it is for the whole town. I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our customers.”
