System Pressure Advisory: Portion of Caswell Beach Road

09.13.2018

The water consumers of Brunswick County Public Utilities located on Caswell Beach, from 700 Caswell beach Rd to 50 Caswell Beach Rd inside Fort Caswell Baptist Assembly are experiencing low pressure starting the afternoon of September 13, 2018. The low pressure was caused by valves being closed for preparation of Hurricane Florence. 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.
