The water consumers of Bladenboro Water System in Bladen County are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to major water break. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria in the water system.
Therefore, when water service is restored consumers are advised to 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 (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
Water customers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible. This advisory remains in effect until further written notification in issued.
