GARNER — Residents of the Forest Landing subdivision are being advised to boil their drinking water after a water main break Monday afternoon.
The city of Raleigh, which provides water to the town of Garner, says the break caused discolored tap water and a drop in pressure before the broken 12-inch pipe was located and fixed late this morning.
City officials are advising about 130 water customers to boil water until further notice as a precaution, though no bacterial contamination has been detected. The subdivision is located off N.C. 50 south of Timber Drive.
The city says water samples from throughout the affected area will be tested before the boil advisory is lifted.
