WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – CFPUA has issued a boil water advisory for the Love Grove neighborhood and some surrounding areas, effective immediately, following a water main break on North 10th street.
The following addresses are under a precautionary boil water advisory: all of the Love Grove area; all of Hall Street; the 900, 1000, and 1100 blocks of North 11th Street; and the 900 block of North 10th Street.
Approximately 150 customers are impacted.
Periods of low or no pressure in the water distribution system increase the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
When under a boil water advisory, customers are asked to boil their water for one minute, then allow it to cool prior to consumption. They also may use another water source such as bottled water.
Consumption includes drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, food preparation, fruit and vegetable washing, pet consumption, and the preparation of baby formula. Customers do NOT need to boil water prior to using it for showering or bathing.
Before a boil water advisory is lifted, CFPUA lab staff test the water to ensure it is safe to drink.
