Boil water advisory lifted for Havelock


HAVELOCK, Craven County - The boil water advisory for Tucker Creek, Macdonald Downs, and the immediate vicinity has been lifted.

Parts of Havelock experienced a water system outage that was being repaired as of Wednesday, October 25.

The City of Havelock Public Services Department said in a press release that the outage was impacting businesses and residents of Tucker Creek and McDonald Downs along with 557, 568, 564, 562 and 558 West Main Street.

Officials at Tucker Creek Elementary School sent out a digital notice Wednesday evening that there would not be any school Thursday due to the water line repair.

While the water service was out, the city recommended residents to...

-- Flush water through your home/business before first use. Running your water for two minutes will ensure your piping contains fresh water.

-- Boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice and washing hands) or use pre-stored or bottled water. Showering and bathing is alright. Vigorous boiling for one minute will kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water. Boiling water concentrates any levels of nitrates that may be present in the water. Infants and pregnant women should use an alternate water supply (e.g., stored or bottled water) whenever possible.

Updates can be found on the City of Havelock's website and Facebook page. Contact (252) 444-6409 with any questions.
