A boil water advisory for parts of Pamlico County has been lifted.

Previous Story

Residents in Pamlico county are still under a boil water advisory this morning, which could remain in effect until Wednesday.

The county's water department say those living along highway 306 near Reelsboro and Olympia experienced low water pressure due to a main water line cut Monday.

Residents need to boil water before bathing, drinking, cooking and brushing your teeth.

The water department says water samples will have to test negative 18 to 24 hours after the incident before the advisory could be lifted.

    While you are boiling your water to take a bath and to drink you are still being charged for contaminated water. Does not seem right to me. How about a comment from one of our commissioners on this problem that seems to happen quite often.
