System Pressure Advisory!
Water customers of Pender County Utilities, in Pender County, on US Highway 117 South in Rocky Point and all side roads and neighborhoods off US Highway 117 South from Rocky Point Elementary Road to Strawberry Lane are advised that due to a water main repair, water has been temporarily turned off to conduct a water main repair in the area to start at 8:00 am, Friday, June 26, 2020. We expect water to be off for nine hours while repairs are performed. Approximately, 60+ homes are affected. These areas included but not limited to East and West Strawberry Lanes, Fall Brook Lane and neighborhood, Lecy Padgett Road, Bridge side Road, Via Dolorosa, Rocky Point Training School Road, Rocky Point Elementary Road and all roads from these streets.
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 36 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.
This advisory will go in effect on Friday 6-26-2020 at 8:00 am by:
James Proctor, W & S Superintendent
