Boil-Water Notice Issued For Cleveland Community

Posted October 13, 2006 10:34 a.m. EDT

— A boil-water advisory was issued Friday for residents and businesses in the Cleveland community in Johnston County, officials said.

The affected area includes water customers on New Bethel Road from the intersection at Cornwallis Road to the Wake County line. This includes all water services connected to the water line, including all residential subdivisions served on or off these roads.

Everyone is advised to boil water at least three minutes before drinking, making ice or brushing teeth.

A water line has been shut down because of the relocation of the main water line for the U.S. Highway 70 Clayton Bypass project.

This boil-water notice is a precautionary measure because of the potential for the water system to become contaminated due to the loss of water pressure.

The notice will remain in effect until the water line work is completed and water samples are analyzed and found to be free of bacteria.
