The Town of Dublin in Bladen County has issued a boil advisory after a water main break.

The Town of Dublin is asking residents to conserve water, and has issued a boil advisory, after a water main broke Thursday afternoon in Bladen County.

Town of Dublin Water System officials warned that the system will have periods of low pressure and outages while the water main is fixed. That can cause back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system.

“Therefore, the Division of Environmental Health ADVISES that when water is restored consumers BOIL ALL WATER used for human consumption (including drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice and washing hands) or use bottled water.”

Officials said the boil advisory will be open until further notice.

Full release from Town of Dublin Water System:

All water consumers served by the Town of Dublin Water System, will be experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system effective 6/23/2022, due to a water main break. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.

Therefore, the Division of Environmental Health ADVISES that when water is restored consumers BOIL ALL WATER used for human consumption (including drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice and washing hands) or use bottled water.

Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.

This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible.

This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
