Water Storage is Improving-Please Continue to Conserve Water Until Further Notice
Water storage is improving. Please continue to conserve water until further notice – essential use only. OWASA is testing water samples for potentially harmful bacteria and expect results by tomorrow (Tuesday) evening. Please continue to boil water until further notice. Some customers may see discoloration in their water due to sediment(non-harmful particles) being stirred-up in pipes. As of 3 pm today, OWASA isolated the water line break on Jones Ferry Road and are continuing to identify if other parts of the system have been affected. OWASA is investigating the cause of the break.
A secondary water line break occurred at 4 pm today in Carrboro affecting 24customers. OWASA is on-site repairing the line.
We’ll continue to provide regular updates. Thank you for your patience.
