County expands Hallsboro boil water notice

Water coming out of the faucet  

UPDATE: More areas were added to the notice late Tuesday night.

A broken main on Red Bug Road left some county customers without water Tuesday, and affected other areas as well.
County staff is working to repair the broken line, which is on Red Bug Road. The line was apparently cut but a crew installing high speed internet cable.

Another problem with a water line in the Hallsboro area occurred Tuesday evening, causing the county to expand the affected area to include:
• Wyche Road
• Oak Street
• Blue Bird Lane
• Whipperwill Lane
• Honey Hill Drive
• Lakeland Circle
• Pierce Road
• Clyde Collier Road
• Red Bug Road
• Giles Byrd Road
• Thurman Road
• Jockey Road
• Sam Potts Highway
• School Road and
• Honey Hill Road.
The customers in these areas will need to boil water used for cooking, drinking, brushing teeth, and washing dishes for the next 24 hours to ensure that no bacteria is present in their water. Vigorously boiling water for one minute should be sufficient to kill any bacteria.
