WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Residents living on the 500 and 600 hundred block of Silver Lake Road and the 5000 block of Perth Drive will need to boil their water before use in response to a water main break Tuesday, according to the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority.
Crews have to remove a 40 ft. pine tree before they can fix the break. Repairs are expected to take 6 to 8 hours. Letters have been delivered to residents in the area.
Residents are advised to boil their water for one minute then allow it to cool before using it for drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, food preparation, fruit and vegetable washing and the preparation of baby formula.
You do not need to boil water prior to using it for showering or bathing.
