Water Outage and Boil Water Advisory!
Water customers along Sloop Point Loop Road from Highway 17 to Strawberry Fields Way, Country Club Drive from Sloop Point Loop Road to Mallard Bay Road, and all of Mallard Bay Road area served by Pender County Utilities are advised that water will be temporarily turned off to complete a watermain relocation for an NCDOT project in the area :
TONIGHT ~ Wednesday, August 8, 2018
between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
Water service will be returned to you as soon as possible upon completion of the work.
Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
Therefore, the Rocky Point/Topsail Water System and the NC Division of Water Resources advise that when water is restored, consumers BOIL ALL WATER used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
