System Pressure Advisory: Part of Boiling Spring Lakes / Aviso de Presion del Sistema Meteorologico


The water consumers of Brunswick County Public Utilities located in Boiling Spring Lakes on E. Boiling Springs Rd. and all connecting roads off E. Boiling Springs Dr. on both sides between North Lake Dr. and the dam have experienced loss of water pressure due to a main line break at the dam caused by contractors working on storm clean up. We have crews on site assessing the damage to repair the line.

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.
