SYSTEM PRESSURE ADVISORY
The water consumers of Scotland County District I South, in Scotland County and City of Laurinburg consumers near this area are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to a 12” water line break Monday morning on Dixie Guano Road. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
Therefore, the Division of Water Resources advises that when water is restored consumers boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible. This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
