The Town of Boone Public Works Department has issued a Boil Water Advisory for Town customers.

At 3 am Wednesday morning, a water main broke along King Street in the vicinity of EarthFare.

A water system pressure loss occurred throughout the entire Town, prompting the notice.

All water consumers are advised 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. King Street has one traffic lane closed but it is anticipated to be reopened by 3:00 pm.

Consumers are also urged to conserve water wherever possible.

For more information call (828) 268-6250.
