BURGAW – Pender County Utilities water customers living in the vicinity of 210 Highway going toward Watts Landing and Surf City are experiencing a water outage. This was caused by a contractor doing a line bore under 210 Highway and drilled into the PCU water main. Crews are onsite and lines isolated. Repairs should be finished in several hours and water restored.
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.
This advisory will go in effect on Tuesday, Dec. 14, starting at 2 p.m. The advisory will be lifted when 24-hour testing comes back negative for Bac-T.
