Boil-water advisory lifted for most of Johnston County after water main break

Johnston County News

CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) — Parts of Johnston County are still under a boil-water advisory Sunday after a water main broke Saturday morning, officials said.

The pipe break happened along N.C. 42 and caused widespread “low or no pressure” in the Clayton and Cleveland water districts, according to a news release from Johnston County spokeswoman Paulette Williams.

Officials said that customers who experienced low or no pressure should boil their water when service is restored. The boil-water advisory lasts for at least 24 hours after water is restored, the news release said.

By Sunday at 4:30 p.m., officials said the boil-water advisory was no longer needed for most areas. However, for residents in the area between 2117 and 3719 N.C. 42 in Clayton the advisory was continued, authorities said Sunday.

“Any tap water for human consumption should be boiled vigorously for three full minutes prior to use,” the news release said.
