Boil Water Advisory

At approximately 3:00 am this morning the Town of Boone experienced a water main break along King Street in the vicinity of Earthfare. Currently, the highway has one traffic lane closed but it is anticipated to be reopened by 3:00 pm. Due to this break, a water system pressure loss occurred throughout the entire Town and due to this, a Boil Water Advisory is issued to the Town customers.

We are advising all water consumers to boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) 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. For a more detailed explanation, please read the attached press release. For more information, please contact Public Works at (828) 268-6230
