BRUNSWICK COUNTY MEDIA RELEASE
Water Conservation Imperative for all Public Water Customers
Bolivia, NC - Mandatory water conservation measures are in place for all consumers of public water in Brunswick County following a water main break.
The raw water main owned by the Lower Cape Fear Water and Sewer Authority that carries raw water from the Kings Bluff Raw Water Pump Station to the County-owned Northwest Water Treatment Plant and others broke Thursday. Since this water main break affects one of Brunswick County Public Utilities' sources of water, it affects not only Brunswick County Public Utilities customers but also the customers of utility providers that purchase wholesale water from Brunswick County, including:
City of Northwest
City of Southport
Southeast Brunswick Sanitary District
Town of Holden Beach
Town of Leland
Town of Navassa
Town of Oak Island
Town of Ocean Isle Beach
Town of Shallotte
Village of Bald Head Island
It is imperative that all public utility customers in Brunswick County do their part to help conserve water until the water main is repaired, likely next week. This applies to those who purchase water directly from Brunswick County Public Utilities, as well as those who purchase water from one of the entities listed above, in all areas of Brunswick County.
Mulch/Compost material is available at the Brunswick County Landfill. There is no charge to anyone and that includes business and towns.
