Eastover Sanitary District

August 3, 2016

PWS ID# NC 50-26-027

During the morning of August 3rd, Eastover Sanitary District had a waterline break. The waterline break did cause low pressure in parts of the water system. The affected areas of the district are all located east of Interstate 95.

The location of the waterline break has been identified, isolated, and pressure is being restored to the system. However, as a precaution and until additional testing can confirm the absence of coliform bacteria, you are advised to boil all water used for human consumption or use bottled water. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Once negative test results are received, the residents will be notified and the boil water advisory will be rescinded. Thank you for you cooperation and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please call Eastover Sanitary District at 910-229-3716.
