Wake Forest lifts boil water advisory

Posted April 16, 2013

Wake Forest

— 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.

    It would have been nice if they could have notified me at some other time than 3AM via the phone.

    So the water main was damaged yesterday and repaired, and today the boil water advisory?
