**Service has been restored**
NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — CFPUA is responding to a water service outage affecting two apartment communities and surrounding homes in the Bayshore area Friday.
At 10 p.m. Thursday, CFPUA issued a precautionary boil water advisory for the following addresses: 7755 and 7775 Market Street, 729 to 778 Scorpion Drive, all of Cosgrove Court, all of Halo Court, 401 to 418 High Green Drive, and 175 Amaryllis Drive.
The advisory was issued due to a contractor offsetting a CFPUA water main for a road-widening project in the area. Issues with materials have caused the reactivation of the water line to be delayed, leading to the water service outage for those addresses.
The outage affects approximately 250 customers in the Three Oaks and Amberleigh Shores apartment communities, as well as approximately 20 nearby homes.
CFPUA staff is on-site in the outage area and replacement materials have been delivered to the site.
