JACKSONVILLE, Onslow County – Due to DOT contractors hitting a 12 inch water main, people from Croaker Lane to the end of White Oak River River in Onslow County may experience a disruption in water service.

Once ONWASA crews are able to make the necessary repairs to the water main, these affected consumers will be under a precautionary boil water advisory.

It is recommended the affected consumers boil all water used for human consumption for a minimum of 1 minute or use bottled water. There is no need to boil water used for showering or bathing.

This advisory will remain in effect until further notice.

ONWASA will inform the affected consumers once the boil water advisory is lifted.
