Pender County Utilities Water customers in the central and western areas of the County from NC Highway 11 (Willard), along Highway 117 from the Duplin County Line south to the New Hanover County line, and west of Highway 117 to US 421 served by Pender County Utilities (Rocky Point/Topsail Water & Sewer District) are advised due to an emergency water main break along east Montague Road, periods of low pressure or outages have occurred and will continue for the next 8 to 10 hours until approximately 10:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 20, 2017.
Water service will be returned to you as soon as possible upon completion of the repair 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, the Rocky Point/Topsail Water System and the NC Division of Water Resources advise that when water is restored, consumers BOIL ALL WATER used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
