WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) — The City of Whiteville has issued a Boil Water Advisory for Vineland Drive for the next 24 Hours.
Safety and Risk Management Officer Hal Lowder, Jr. said an advisory does not mean that the water is contaminated, but rather the possibility exists.
The City repaired a water main break on Vineland Drive.
Lowder said you should boil tap water vigorously for at least one full minute prior to using it for drinking or cooking.
This includes water used for brushing teeth, making ice, washing raw foods, preparation of drinks, and water for pets.
