Stormwater pipe installation to require boil advisory for some CFPUA customers.
Officials with the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority say work related to the installation of new stormwater pipe will require a precautionary boil water advisory for several customers.
Water customers at the addresses listed below will experience periods of low pressure and/or outages in the distribution system on Wednesday, Sept. 20 starting at 9 am.
This advisory is for: 600 through 1200 blocks of North Kerr Avenue 4500 & 4600 blocks of New Centre Drive All of Alandale Drive All of Sagedale Drive All of Shortfin Drive All of Angelfish Lane Minnow Way All of Crawdad Court All of Amber Jack Drive All of Sunglow Drive All of Crimson Court All of Tabor Lane All of Indica Court Customers in other parts of CFPUA service areas are not affected and do not need to boil their water.
Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
Affected customers should use boiled water that has cooled or bottled water for: Drinking Brushing teeth Washing fruits and vegetables Preparing food and baby formula Making ice Giving to pets Customers do NOT need to boil water prior to using it for showering or bathing.
The boil water advisory will be in effect until water quality testing has occurred and service is returned to normal.
