WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The precautionary water boil advisory for residents near Eastwood Road was  lifted Wednesday afternoon.

CFPUA issued an advisory Tuesday because a 40-year-old water main broke in the area, and crews were needed for repair.

According to CFPUA, the following areas affected were: 743-1013 Eastwood Road (odd side only), 100 & 200 blocks of Bretonshire Road, 100 and 200 Tanbridge Road, 100, 200 and 300 blocks of Windemere Road, and 0 and 100 blocks of Long Leaf Acres Drive.

Water boil's were required because of the potential for bacteria to be released into the water system. Customers were asked to boil their water for one minute and allow it to cool before consumption, including drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, food preparation, pet consumption, fruit and vegetable washing and the preparation of baby formula; but not for bathing.

A water quality test was completed and again, the advisory is now lifted. For any further questions or concerns customers are asked to call the information line at 910-332-6500.
