CFPUA: Emergency work means no water for part of Wilmington Tuesday

Monday, August 18th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) says emergency repairs tomorrow will require a service outage and a subsequent precautionary boil water advisory for a portion of Wilmington.

The water service outage will occur between from 9 a.m. to about 4 p.m. It will affect the following areas:

-1300-1600 Blocks of Castle, Church, Nun, Ann, and Orange Streets;
-1300-1400 Blocks of Glenn St.
-1400 Block of Norman St.
-1300 Block of Marsdon Ave.
-100–200 Blocks of Kendall Ave.
-200-500 Blocks of S. 13th, S. 14th, S. 15th, and S. 16th Sts. and all alleys located therein

There will also be a road closure as a result of the work that will merge two lanes of S. 17th Street into one lane between Nun Street and Carolina Avenue.

A precautionary boil water advisory will be issued after the outage is over because periods of low or no pressure increase the potential for the introduction of bacteria into the water system. CFPUA customers in the above described area will be asked to boil their water for one minute then allow it to cool prior to consumption or utilize another water source such as bottled water. Consumption includes drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, food preparation, fruit and vegetable washing and the preparation of baby formula. Customers do NOT need to boil water prior to using it for showering or bathing.
