The water consumers of Brunswick County Public Utilities on Cobia Street, N Shore Drive, 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th Street on Sunset Beach are experiencing periods of low water pressure and outages caused by a broken water main.

Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increase the potential for back-siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system. Therefore, Brunswick County Public Utilities and the Division of Water Resources advise 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.
