Elizabethtown issues boil-water advisory


Boil Water Precautionary Advisory for the area(s):

Apartments at 645 Smith Cir., 643 Smith Cir., & 641 Smith Cir.

The water customers of the Town Of Elizabethtown in the above described area and those

within close proximity may be experiencing periods of low pressure and /or outages in the

distribution system due to a water main break. The Town Of Elizabethtown is presently

working to correct the problem in the fastest and most efficient manner.

Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back

siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system. Therefore, the Town Of

Elizabethtown advises that when water service is restored the residents of the above

described area boil their water prior to human consumption or utilize another water

source such as bottled water. Human consumption includes all water used for cooking,

making ice, drink mixing, food preparation, hand washing, or other means of

consumption. Residents should vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute

prior to drinking or cooking until otherwise notified by the Town of Elizabethtown.

The Boil Water Advisory shall be in effect until water quality testing has occurred and

service is returned to normal. When testing is completed, and service is returned to

normal, updates to this advisory will be provided via hand-delivered announcement,

posted on our website, www.elizabethtownnc.org, and/or sent as press release to area

media outlets.

If you have any questions concerning this Notice, call Public Services (910) 862-2035 or
