Current Advisories

Advisories are issued due to low pressure, hydrant flushing, area-wide boil water notices, and other water quality issues. When a limited number of customers are affected by a water quality issue, notices are done by door hangers and/or telephone messaging. Brunswick County also issues notices when roads will close due to utility construction.

To receive notification via email when a general advisory is issued, sign up for the Utilities Updates emails from Brunswick County’s email notification system.
