Pender County utility officials say periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.

Therefore, consumers are advised to boil all water used for human consumption
(including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation)
or use bottled water.

Vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that
may be present in the water according to Pender County water officials.

Water customers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible.

This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
