WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A system pressure advisory is in effect for portions of Brunswick County.
Due to a power outage that affected water pumps in the area, water consumers of Brunswick County Public Utilities from the intersection of Hwy. 211 and Hwy. 17 (at Supply) westward to the intersection of Hwy. 17 and Old Shallotte Road (west of Shallotte) are experiencing periods of low pressure in the distribution system. This also includes areas served by BCPU water lines on streets which connect to this section of Route 17 between Supply and Shallotte.
This does not include water customers of the Town of Shallotte.
Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria.
