MAYSVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Residents of one Eastern Carolina town can treat their water like normal again after a waterline break caused officials to issue a boil water advisory Thursday.

Maysville town officials say drinkable water has been brought back to near capacity. The water has been found to be free of coliform bacteria.

On Thursday, they said a contractor hit the waterline, causing periods of low water pressure or outages for their distribution system.

Because there’s a potential for bacteria to get into the water system when this happens, customers were asked to boil their water for one minute. That included water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation.

The town says people should continue to manage their water usage and consumption and report any leaks or problems to them by calling (910) 743-4441.
