Boil Water Advisory Lifted

ONWASA says the boil water advisory for the Southwest area of Onslow County has been lifted.

The water system says tests show there was no contamination of the water because of Tuesday's leak.

Previous Story

A large water leak in Onslow County has prompted a boil water advisory for people living in the Southwest area.

The areas affected are: Highway 53, from Old Maplehurst Road west to Harris Creek Road including Haws Run Road, and Highway 17 South from Murril Hill Road to Verona: Blue Creek Road, west from Pony Farm Road to Highway 53.

ONWASA says the boil advisory is strictly a precaution, as there was a loss of pressure in the system because of the leak.

All customers in the affected area should boil water for one minute that is used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice and washing hands.

Customers in the affected areas that on the City of Jacksonville system are not impacted.

    Put a map up of the effect area! A whole lot easier then trying to figure out the direction they put up!
