WILLIAMSTOWN, W.Va. (WTAP) - Water service for the city of Williamstown will be turned off at 9 p.m. Friday while workers repair a water leak, Mayor Paul Jordan said.

The city announced the shut-off in a news release Friday afternoon, and Mayor Paul Jordan said he expects the problem to be fixed by Saturday morning

“This being the size line it is, it’s not an easy fix,” Jordan said. “So, that’s why we cannot do it under the pressure type of situations. So, they’re ready. I would say that we’re hoping for the best case scenario to be done within a few hours. But it should be finished within the morning hours.”

Residents are asked to avoid the area near the 500 block of Victoria Avenue at West 6th Street.

A boil advisory will be in place until at least Monday morning, the city said.

This is a developing story, and we will have updates online and during WTAP News as more information becomes available.
