HAMPSTEAD – Pender County Utilities (PCU) rescinded the Feb. 11, System Pressure Advisory issued to water customers along Dogwood Lane and adjacent roads off Dogwood Lane.
Bacteriological analysis results of drinking water samples collected after completion of the water system repair on Thursday, Feb. 13 show no coliform bacteria present.
“The system has resumed normal operations, and you may use the water without boiling,” James Proctor, PCU superintendent, said. “Additional flushing was performed in this area on Friday to help remove trapped air and any loose sediment from the repairs.”
Proctor requested residents in the affected area to please remove and clean strainers on faucets in your house to also remove any potential debris.
The system pressure advisory is hereby rescinded Feb. 14.
