Boil water advisory issued for Rocky Point

ROCKY POINT, N.C. (WECT) - Officials with Pender County Utilities have lifted a boil water advisory for some residents of Rocky Point.

The warning came down Sunday afternoon after a water main leak was repaired in the area of Lightwood Knot Road in Rocky Point.

Affected customers were advised to boil their water for one minute before using it to drink, cook or wash dishes.

“Bacteriological analysis results of drinking water samples collected after completion of the repair from this water system show no coliform bacteria present,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Utilities director. “The system has resumed normal operations and you may use the water without boiling.”
