RESCINDED: System Pressure Advisory: Jericho Road/Bethel Road

Note: This notice has been rescinded.

The water consumers of Brunswick County Public Utilities located from Jericho Road to the end of Bethel Road, including Winding Creek and Walden Creek subdivisions (off River Road north of Smithville Township Park), are experiencing low pressure starting September 19, 2018. The low pressure is following repairs to broken water mains 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.
