"I've lived here forty one years of my life, we've never had great water," said lifelong Fayette County resident, Sandy Kidd.

Kidd has spent those years in the Kincaid area.

She and other residents are fighting for clean, usable water.

It's a request many believe they shouldn't have to ask for.

"It's 2020 and we're living in the richest country in the world and the people in this state and especially in the third congressional district, are having to fight for something as basic as just clean water," said Hilary Turner's campaign manager, Kaylen Baker.

They utilized a $500 water fund to bring clean water to residents.

"But, we really need to make sure that we get clean water flowing to their homes and solve the issue on a deeper level," said third congressional candidate, Hilary Turner.

The issue is in the works of being resolved by the West Virginia Public Service Commission.

It gave the Page-Kincaid Service District a 30 day notice to come to an agreement with the West Virginia American Water Company.

"If they don't, then we will force action to get Page Kincaid customers good, clean water," said WVPSC Chairwoman, Charlotte Lane.

"I'm hoping that they make a deal, I'm hoping the commissioner is hearing our cries. We have some that's calling daily, weekly, some is even filled formal complaints. We just want clean water," Kidd siad.

She and other residents said they've had enough and aren't satisfied with the way the PSD has handled their water crisis.

"I'm hoping that they make a deal, I'm hoping the commissioner is hearing our cries. We have some that's calling daily, weekly, some is even filled formal complaints. We just want clean water," she said.

Now, they are pushing to have board members removed and just hope for just hope to find a solution.
