Richlands Boil Water Advisory

By  | 

Before Richlands residents jump in for a morning shower, remember there is a boil water advisory in effect.

Onslow County Water and Sewer Authority, or ONWASA, put a boil water advisory into effect at 11 p.m. Wednesday which runs through 6 a..m Thursday.

Crews are working to repair water systems at West Foy and North Church streets.

ONWASA said there may be low or no water pressure for some in the Town of Richlands during the time of the advisory.

If you plan to use tap water to eat, drink, or brush your teeth, you are encouraged to boil it for a full minute before use. Officials ask you also boil water if you are using it to wash dishes or prepare food.

Crews said the overnight work could introduce bacteria into the water system.
