Water Refill Stations Opened in Shallotte, near Holden Beach
Bolivia, NC – Brunswick County has opened two water refill stations for
Brunswick County Public Utilities customers south of Shallotte affected by the
system pressure advisory.
Crews continue to repair a break in a 24 inch water main in Shallotte and hope
to restore water within the next few hours. Crews are confident that
vacationers do not need to leave the beach and that water will be restored
In the meantime, customers affected by the system pressure advisory can fill
water containers for drinking or use in toilets at a water refill station.
Customers will need to bring their own clean containers with lids.
Refill stations are set up at:
1371 Holden Beach Road
Shallotte Middle School (225 Village Road SW in Shallotte)
Water from these pumping stations is potable, or drinkable, and can be poured
into toilet tanks to allow continued use of toilets in areas with low or no
pressure while repairs are made.
Shallotte Park, Ocean Isle Beach Park, Waccamaw Park and the Rourk Library
Branch in Shallotte are all closed Tuesday due to the water main break.
