Water customers of Pender County Utilities, in Pender County, along the Scotts Hill area on Inlet Drive, High Tide Drive, Ebb Drive, and Sandbar Drive, are advised that due to a water main break, water was temporarily turned off to conduct a water main repair in the area on Nov. 19.

Water service has been restored.

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.
