WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority has lifted a precautionary boil water advisory for customers who were affected by a water main break earlier this week.
According to CFPUA, crews worked on emergency water main repairs near the intersection of S. 12th Street and Crocus Court. A 12-inch water main, approximately 60 years of old, broke earlier Tuesday night.
The boil advisory was issued as a precaution because of periods of low or no pressure increase the likelihood for bacteria entering the water system.
