Pamlico County issues water system pressure advisory
Pamlico County issues water system pressure advisory.
The water department is making repairs to the system after the break was reported.
The NC Department of Transportation has a traffic detour set up around the break from NC Hwy 306 S. to Kershaw Rd to Don Lee Rd to Buckland Rd back onto NC Hwy 306 S. The break is impacting the following areas: — Residents along Highway NC 306 South from the intersections of Seafarer Road to Buckland Road (from Bethany Christian Church down to the intersection of Buckland Road).
Includes Arlington Place and other adjacent roads.
Officials said periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
Residents are advised to boil all water used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice and washing hands or used bottled water.
Vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
