Water main break causing low pressure and outages in Manteo

MANTEO, N.C. (WVEC) The Pirates Cove community residents are experiencing periods of low pressure and water outages due to a main break. 

Because of the reported issues, officials say there is potential for back-siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system. 

Residents are encouraged to boil all water that is used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, preparing food, etc. 

Boiling the water for one minute should be enough to kill off any disease causing organisms.
