CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Boil water and do not drink/limited contact notices have been lifted for thousands of West Virginia American Water customers in parts of Kanawha and Putnam Counties.

The do not drink/limited contact advisory has been lifted for customers in the town of Buffalo, Frazier's Bottom and Pliny that were told not drink and have limited contact with their water.

A boil water advisory has been lifted for 300 customers in the Cross Lanes, Nitro Marketplace and Nitro areas. It was issued Thursday after extensive flushing caused the water storage tank to drain.

About 1,000 customers in the Edens Fork and Tuppers Creek area of Sissonville can also now use their water without boiling it first.
The advisory was issued Wednesday for parts of Holmes Hollow Road, Kanawha Two Mile, Copen Branch, Bald Knob Drive, Five Mile Road, Rosewood Way, Meyers Lane, Odessey Way, Little Debbie Lane, Gaiena Road, Centennial Drive, Silas Drive, Clara Drive, Applehill Lane, Tate Hollow Road, Turkey Pen Branch, Legg Fork, Ashville Lane and Hughart Drive following extensive flushing in the area caused a water storage tank to drain.

Customers are encouraged to share this information with other West Virginia American Water customers in the affected areas.

For more information, contact West Virginia American Water's customer service center at 1-800-685-8660.
