Water System Pressure Advisory for Customers of

-
This applies to all Customers of Belfast-Patetown Sanitary District,
Eastern Wayne Sanitary District, Northwestern Wayne
Sanitary District, Southeastern Wayne Sanitary District, Southwestern Wayne Sanitary District, Fork Township Sanitary
District, Town of Eureka, Town of Fremont, Town of Pikeville, and Village of Walnut Creek.

 

We have several waterline breaks reported
.
Some of the locations are:

2 in the Grantham area at Selah Church Road and Westbrook Church Road

I on NC 111 South near Cliffs of the Neuse

I on Woodpeck Road at US 70 and Ditchbank Road

I on Nor Am Road at Bayer Science Labs.

 

Given that these breaks have occurred there is the
potential for contamination. When potable water service is
interrupted as a result of a break in a water main or scheduled repairs to the water system, customers may experience periods of low pressure or discolored water until full service is restored.

Based on the potential for contamination from cross connection, as a precaution only, customers affected by this service interruption are advised to boil all water used for human consumption or use commercially bottled or previously stored water.

 

Bringing the water to a full rolling boil for a period of one (I) minute before consumption (drinking or making tea, coffee, Kool-Aid, tc.) or ice making should greatly reduce the possibility of any bacteriological contamination. If you cannot boil the water, add plain household bleach (which is 4-6% chlorine), using one quarter teaspoon
per gallon, shake, and let stand for 30 minutes. Water should
have a slight bleach odor.

 

Because boiling water can increase nitrate levels that might be 6% chlorine), using one quarter teaspoon per gallon, shake, and let stand for 30 minutes. Water should have a slight bleach odor. Because boiling water can increase nitrate levels that might be present, bottled water or stored water should be used by pregnant women and for preparing infant formula. If you do not have bottled water available for pregnant women and infants, it is better for them to drink boiled water than no water at all. It is important to not become dehydrated.
.
No microbiological contamination has been found
in the drinking water as a result of this incident. Samples will be
collected from throughout the affected area to confirm the
microbiological quality as soon as pressure is restored.
.
If you have not been notified within 48 hours that the advisory has
been extended, the water samples have been tested and safe
for consumption without boiling.

THIS ADVISORY IS EXTENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
