Wake Forest lifts boil water advisory
Posted April 16, 2013
Wake Forest, N.C. — The town of Wake Forest has lifted a boil water advisory Tuesday for residents affected by a water main break a day earlier.
Contractors on Monday afternoon damaged a 12-inch water main near the intersection of Durham and Wake Union Church roads. The damaged pipe delivers water to a large portion of Wake Forest, including Crenshaw Hall and Crenshaw Manor subdivisions.
Workers from the City of Raleigh repaired the damage and restored water services within three hours. However, the water had to be tested for possible bacterial contamination from the loss of water pressure. Residents were cautioned to boil any water used for consumption.
The test results came back clear late Tuesday.
