Boil advisory lifted in Ogden area following water main break

Boil advisory issued for some in Ogden area following water main break

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - CFPUA has lifted the boil advisory in the Ogden area Saturday morning.

At approximately 8 a.m. Friday, a contractor working for the N.C. Department of Transportation struck and broke an 8-inch water main. CFPUA crews were able to install a bypass before 10 a.m. to return water service to the area.

The break temporarily caused periods of low water pressure for some customers in the Ogden area. CFPUA issued a precautionary boil water advisory for all of Middle Sound Loop Road and for 7000 to 7300 Market Street.

As of 10 a.m. Saturday morning, that boil advisory has been lifted for that area. Customers can go back to using their water as normal.
