A boil water notice for all residents of Brunswick Forest in Leland was rescinded Saturday, December 20. Bacteriological analysis results of drinking water samples collected from the water system show no coliform bacteria present, and the system has resumed normal operations, according to a statement released by the North Brunswick Sanitary District. The district issued the notice the previous day as a precautionary measure due to utilities construction on Low Country Boulevard in Brunswick Forest. The construction caused a loss of pressure in the water system, which could potentially cause contamination in the lines, according to a press release. Water suppliers are required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to notify customers to boil water when water samples indicate contamination or when conditions exist that make the water supply vulnerable to contamination. These conditions include a drop in system pressure to below 20 pounds per square inch, a break in a major distribution line, a malfunction of the treatment system or a cross-connection to a contaminated water supply.
