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

10.17.2018

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.

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Presumptives

Effective 3/14/2017, the VA established presumptive service connection for diseases associated with exposure to contaminants in the water supply at Camp Lejeune.

The presumption of service connection applies to active duty, reserve and National Guard members who served at Camp Lejeune for a minimum of 30 days (cumulative) between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987, and are diagnosed with any of the following conditions:

  • adult leukemia
  • aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
  • bladder cancer
  • kidney cancer
  • liver cancer
  • multiple myeloma
  • non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Parkinson’s disease

In the early 1980’s, volatile organic compounds, trichloroethylene (TCE), a metal degreaser, and perchloroethylene (PCE), a dry cleaning agent, as well as benzene and vinyl chloride, were discovered in two on-base water supply systems at Camp Lejeune. The contaminated wells supplying the water systems were shut down in February 1985.

The area included in this presumption is all of Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River, including satellite camps and housing areas.

Our office can assist you with applying for this benefit, or any of the benefits listed on these pages. Please call us at 910-253-2233 to schedule an appointment.
