ROCKY POINT, N.C. (WECT) - Pender County customers are no longer under a boil water advisory or voluntary water restrictions.

“The water main break in the western part of Pender County has been repaired, which has returned water supplied to their normal availability,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Utilities director

Pender County Utilities customers were expected to be without water or will have reduced pressure most of the day Friday, while repairs were made to a water main break.

“Water customers of Pender County Utilities, in Pender County, including Moore’s Creek Water District, Central Pender Water District, and Rocky Point/Topsail Water District west of 7390 NC Highway 210 are advised that due to a water main break and other Hurricane Dorian related failures, water service is currently unavailable or at below normal pressures,” PCU said in a news release.

The notice included all areas served with water by Pender County Utilities west of I-40, as well as areas along and adjacent to NC 53 east of Burgaw, and areas along N.C. 210 north and west of 7390 NC Highway 210 (Running Deer Landfill.)
