WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Just before 4:00 Wednesday afternoon, a boil water advisory was lifted for residents on Holly Tree Road between S. College and Shipyard.

Water consumers of the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority in that area was experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to water main repair.

Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.

Again, the boil water advisory has been lifted.
