Water conservation in Avon requested due to line break

Due to a water line break between Avon and Buxton on Hatteras Island, the Dare County Water Department is requesting that all water users in Avon reduce water consumption in an effort to sustain a pressurized water system within the village, states a media release from Dare County.

Crews are currently working to repair the water line break; however, it will be several hours before the break is repaired. An estimated time for the repair to be made is around 7:30 or 8:30 p.m.

“The Dare County Water Department appreciates the public’s cooperation in reducing the water consumption until the water line is fully repaired and production is restored to full capacity,” stated the release.

For more information, contact the Dare County Water Department at 252-475-5990 or water@darenc.com.
