NEW HANOVER COUNTY

A mandatory boil water advisory has been issued for consumers of Carolina Beach.

Crews in Carolina Beach are working to restore water and sewer services. Residents should see water pressure slowly gaining throughout the day.

Residents can use the water to bathe but should boil water for a minute or two before human consumption or use bottled water.

Customers will be notified when testing is completed and service is returned to normal.
