Previously, Brunswick County Public Utilities and the Division of Water Resources announced that a water outage would take place on Thursday, April 13 for select areas of Calabash and Sunset Beach.

According to the announcement, water valve construction work was expected to cause outages in the distribution system, which would increase the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system.

  • 8978 to 8909 Landing Drive SW

  • Sea Lane
  • 9005 to 9047 Heritage Drive SW

Consumers were asked to boil all water used for human consumption or use bottled water.

Authorities stated that vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.

  • Washing dishes
  • Preparing food
