Water customers of Pender County Utilities, in Pender County, along Kenneth Lee Drive, East Brenda Lee Drive, West Brenda Lee Drive, and a portion of Sloop Point Loop Road between Fieldcrest Drive and Sloop Point Road, are advised that due to a water main break, water has been temporarily turned off to conduct a water main repair in the area this tonight, Tuesday August 27, 2019. We expect water to be off for several hours while repairs are performed.
Water service will be returned 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, 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.
