Water System Color & Aesthetics Advisory

09.27.2018

Based on the laboratory analysis of water samples collected the week of September 26th, 2018, slightly elevated levels of iron and manganese have been detected in portions of the distribution system. This may lead to slight variations in color of slightly yellowish to slightly brown. The water is still safe to drink and meets all drinking water standards.

What causes the release of iron and manganese in the water mains?

In conversation with NC DEQ officials, they have seen this type of release in other water systems.  It can be attributable to increased iron and manganese in the flooding associated with hurricane Florence, scouring of distribution water mains as may occur with broken water lines and or elevated water temperatures and increased water demands in the distribution system.  Our distribution crews are out flushing the water system pipes as they are made aware of the issues in a particular area.

It is advisable to not wash white linens if you have discolored water at your tap. Brunswick County will post a new release when the Color and Aesthetics Advisory is rescinded.

This notice is issued and effective September 27, 2018.

We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this period.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
