System Pressure Advisory for portions of Hampstead-area
Water customers of Pender County, from Hwy 17 / Whitebridge Road to 469 Whitebridge Road including all roads and side roads including, Mare Pond Place, Holly Grove Lane, Otter Pond Lane, Saddlebrook Lane, and East Rolling Meadows Road, will be without water or will have low water pressure.
Repairs are underway and customers will be without water for several hours.
The cause of the break is due to construction damage.
Water service will be returned upon completion of the work.
Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increase the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system. Therefore, consumers in the area noted above 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.
