Water flows again in Avon; boil water advisory in effect

Potable water service to Avon was interrupted at a water main break beside N.C. 12 between Avon and Buxton. Once the repair was completed, the water system was flushed and returned to normal operation around 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Based on the potential for contamination from the main break, customers in Avon are advised to boil all water used for human consumption including drinking, cooking, brushing teeth and making ice or use bottled water. Vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.

Samples will be collected throughout the affected area to confirm the microbiological quality as soon as pressure is restored. The system pressure advisory will be lifted on Monday, June 14, 2021 at 3 p.m.

If there is a problem, customers will be notified of a continued advisory. Customers may experience periods of low pressure and discolored water until full service is restored.

For additional information, contact Elliott Midgett, water superintendent with the Dare County Water Department at 252-475-5770 or 252-475-5812 after hours
