GARY, W.Va. – After a week without water, Gary official Lawrence Barber was happy to announce yesterday evening that the new main pump had both arrived and been installed.
City employees worked to flush hydrants Tuesday evening, removing air and sediment from the lines. Gary residents were encouraged to slowly turn valves on and to clean any spicket screens for sediment.
The Boil Water Advisory set by the McDowell County Health Department currently remains active until the Health Department terminates it.
Barber took the time to commend the citizens of Gary for their patience through the crisis and all the volunteers and support received by the community and surrounding areas.
