BANNER ELK, N.C. -- A water loss advisory and boil water notification from the town of Banner Elk has been put in place.
Officials with the Division of Water Resources say water consumers may experience periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to a water main break.
They advise as water service is restored, consumers boil all water for drinking, food preparation, bathing, etc. to eliminate the potential for health hazards that may be present in the water.
