WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority has scheduled a service outage and precautionary boil advisory on Friday, April 4 at noon for areas near downtown Wilmington.

CFPUA crews will be replacing three valves in the area and will require a water service outage to complete the work.

The affected addresses will be:

  • 600 through 1200 blocks of N. 4th Street
  • All of Parsley and Davis Streets
  • 1100 block of Cowan Street
  • 400 block of Swann Street
  • 300 block of Harnett Street

This precautionary boil water advisory is being issued with the outage 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 should 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.

Customers can also call into CFPUA's new Precautionary Boil Water Advisory Information Line at (910) 332-6500 for details.

The Precautionary Boil Water Advisory shall be in effect until water quality testing has occurred and service has returned to normal, typically within 24 hours.
