Raleigh County Family Speaking Out On Major Water Issues

Raleigh County

A family in Lester has been without water for almost a month now and they say enough is enough.

They told us they can’t flush their toilets, wash their clothes or even take a bath. The family told us that they’ve contacted the Raleigh County Public Service District multiple times but have not been able to get any results. They claim no one on their street has water and it’s been an issue for a while now.

“I’m just hoping that we can get our water on that’s what I’m praying for. If I could get water I would be happier than I don’t know what, that’s what I truly truly want is water,” Teresa Pierce said. 

We reached out to the Beckley Water Company. They said that the weather has caused several water utilities in the region to experience abnormal difficulties. They said they are working with the Raleigh County PSD to maintain water to everyone.
