BURGAW – Pender County Utilities water customers living in the vicinity of NC Highway 133 from Paul’s Place to Schoolview Drive and all roads and side roads adjacent to Carver Road in Rocky Point will be without water or will have low water pressure. Customers will be without water for several hours due to a joint failure.
Repair crews are working to return water service. Periods of low or no water pressure in the system will increase the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the system.
Consumers in the affected area are advised to boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation) or use bottled water until this advisory is lifted. This advisory will be in effect for a minimum of 24 hours.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water. Water customers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
