City issues boil water advisory

Posted on: 11.7.2017 at 05:38 p.m.

The City of Whiteville has issued a Boil Water Advisory for West College Street and West Lewis Street between Madison and Lee Street for the next 24 hours.

An advisory does not mean that the water is contaminated, but rather the possibility exists. The City repaired a water main break on West College Street. The advisory will expire at 5 p.m., Nov. 8 unless the City advises otherwise. Water will be monitored and tested.

You should boil tap water vigorously for at least one full minute prior to using it for drinking or cooking. This includes water used for brushing teeth, making ice, washing raw foods, preparation of drinks, and water for pets.

For more information contact Hal Lowder, Safety & Risk Management Officer at 642.8046.
