Atlantic Beach restaurants closed due to town-wide boil water advisory.
ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. (WNCT) — Restaurants in Atlantic Beach are closed after a town-wide boil water advisory was issued due to a faulty water sample taken this week.
An exact time for reopening is unknown.
The town said their water staff is actively going over the system and its processes.
It can also happen due to a break in the distribution system (pipes) or faulty backflow prevention valves on users properties, or contaminated containers sent to the lab for testing.
The town of Atlantic Beach said they routinely sample and check their water samples all over the town each month.
The town said it is actively chlorinating and flushing the water system and increasing sampling all over town to verify the problem and fix it as soon as possible.
They will be searching and sampling all weekend and hope to be able to lift the advisory as soon as possible.
