Boil Water Advisory

Moore County has issued a boil water advisory for several communities near U.S. 1, after a water main break in the area.

Water consumers along U.S. Hwy 1 south of Vass, including Hyland Hills, Skyline Estates, and Southern Dunes in the East Moore Water District in Moore County are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to a water main break.

According to the notification alert, 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 Division of Water Resources advises that when water is restored consumers should boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.

Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.

Water consumers are also urged to conserve water whenever possible.

This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued by Moore County Public Utilities. For more information, call (910) 947-6315.
