ROCKY MOUNT - The town of Rocky Mount has issued a boil water for Rocky Mount water costumers on West Colege, Hatcher, Dent, Cedar, Spring, Brown, Luke, Buckner and Wilson Streets after a water main break on West College Street.
The water line has been repaired, but installation of replacement pipe requires time to make sure no harmful organisms are present, the town said.
Failure to follow the advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.
The town says to bring all tap water to a rolling rolling boil for one minute and to let it cool before using. The other option is to use bottled water.
You should be able to use your tap water at noon on WEDNESDAY, JULY 18.
