WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A precautionary boil water advisory will begin Thursday night at 9:00 for Cape Fear Public Utility Authority customers in the Winds Ridge subdivision.
According to CFPUA, a private contractor is scheduled to cut a new water line connection at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and Winds Ridge Drive.
The work could cause periods of low or no pressure for customers in that area. CFPUA estimates the work will take 6-8 hours.
It is advised that these customers boil their water for at least one full minute prior to human consumption until otherwise notified by CFPUA. Human consumption includes cooking, making ice, drink mixing, food preparation and hand washing.
Affected customers do NOT need to boil water prior to using it for bathing.
