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.
