Boil Water Precautionary Advisory for the area(s):
Richardson St. to Gum St. on Martin Luther King Dr.; Martin St. to
Gum St. on Martin Luther King Dr.; and Quail St. at James St. to
Martin Luther King Dr.
The water customers of the Town Of Elizabethtown in the above described areas and those
within close proximity may be experiencing periods of low pressure and/or outages in the
distribution system due to a water main repair. 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 a posting on our website,
www.elizabethtownnc.org, and sent as press release to area media outlets.
If you have any questions concerning this Notice, call Public Services (910) 862-2035 or
