PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - The Parkersburg Utility Board has issued a boil water advisory for some people living on Emerson Avenue.

The advisory is for people from Emerson Avenue north of Stella Street to 5106 Emerson Avenue and Paddock Green Drive.

According to the release, people in the area should boil their water for one minute and let it cool before using it.

Crews are working the fix the break, and distribution lines will be flushed thoroughly.
