This message is to advise Customers of a Boil Advisory in your area until further notice.
The Boil Advisory is in effect due to a drop-in water pressure which may increase the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system. No problem has been detected in the water; however, as a precautionary measure, when water is restored consumers boil all water used for human consumption (including, drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation). As an alternative, bottled water may be used. The North Carolina Division of Water Resources Public Water Supply Section has been contacted concerning this event.
Vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible. Call our Customer Service Department at 800-525-7990 for additional information.
