More water woes for some NHC residents

Hundreds of residents in a New Hanover County neighborhood are once again under orders to boil their drinking water.

County officials say a work crew severed a water line early Monday evening. This is the third time it has happened in the same neighborhood in recent weeks. Water is flowing, but anytime there is an interruption, residents are advised to take no chances with what comes out of the tap.

The water was to be tested late Monday, and the order to boil could be lifted as early as Tuesday.
