RESCINDED: System Pressure Advisory: BSL, Southport, St. James, Caswell, Long Beach Road, George II HIghway

09.16.2018
Note: This notice has been rescinded for ALL CUSTOMERS.

The water consumers of Brunswick County Public Utilities located along George II Highway, all of Boiling Spring Lakes, all of St. James, all of the Southport area, all of the Caswell Beach area and all of the Long Beach Road area are experiencing low pressure starting the morning of September 16, 2018. The low pressure was caused by mainline breaks in the system caused by Hurricane Florence and the subsequent flooding. 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, Brunswick County Public Utilities and the Division of Water Resources advises that 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.
