City helps utility boost water pressure in north Raleigh neighborhood
Posted September 28
Raleigh, N.C. — In a statement issued Thursday afternoon, Aqua North Carolina said it worked with the City of Raleigh to install a temporary water connection to boost pressure in one local neighborhood.
"As of this afternoon, pressure in the Stonehenge system has increased to normal levels. However, customers in the area are still being asked to limit using water for non-essential needs until further notice, including watering lawns, plants and shrubs," Aqua said in a statement.
The president of Aqua America told WRAL News on Wednesday that recent water shortages or outages are due to overuse.
A spokesperson warned that customers could see "temporary discoloration of their water" or a slightly different taste.
"Aqua continues to work on a permanent solution to address the water pressure issues in the area," the statement said.
