1st Craven Sanitary District operating following Florence challenges

First Craven Sanitary District is now operating under normal conditions. The office is now open during normal business hours and the treatment plant is operating at full capacity.

The water system operated under emergency power from 11:30 a.m. Thursday until 9 p.m. on Sunday. There was a water main break early Sunday morning affecting about 15 customers out of water for most of that day. They were issued a boiling water advisory. That advisory has been lifted.

There was no other issues with the water system and no other boil water advisories were issued. Due to high demand (leaks caused by the storm), district officials did ask customers to conserve water during the storm.

The water district did experience flooding at it facility and lost equipment in its shop. However, the water plant, office, and water system was never compromised.
