Pressure advisory lifted for the Brice’s Creek area


NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) Potable water served by the Craven County Water System has been restored to near capacity. 

Samples collected from multiple locations within the system have been analyzed by a State Certified Laboratory and found to be free of coliform bacteria.

Based on these results and the continued presence of consistent pressure throughout the system, the pressure advisory for the Brice’s Creek area is rescinded.

Persons served by this system are urged to continue to manage their water usage and consumption and report any leaks or problems to the Craven County Water system.


NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) The water consumers of Craven County Water, in the Brice’s Creek area,  Kelso Road to Brice’s Creek are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to a mainline repair. 

Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.

Therefore, when water service is restored, consumers are advised to boil all water 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.

Water consumers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible. 

The advisory remains in effect until further notice.
