MOUNTAIN HOME, NC -

Mountain Home customers of the Hendersonville Water and Sewer System are being advised to boil their water for at least one minute after an accident damaged a fire hydrant and caused a loss of water pressure in the area.

The loss of pressure occurred as Water and Sewer System employees performed repairs of the hydrant at the intersection of Courtland Boulevard and Blade Road following the accident. Residents in the area along Wickins Drive, Courtland Blvd., Wisteria Lane, Blade Road, Old Park Road, Sycamore Circle, Pinellas Street, Old Springs Place, Fresh Spring Drive and Sweet Pea Lane.

According to a spokesman for Hendersonville Water and Sewer, crews will be working this portion of the city's water distribution system and the estimated time of completion is believed to be around 11:30 p.m. Monday night.

Periods of low-to-no pressure in this area increases the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the portion of the city's water distribution system. Hendersonville Water and Sewer staff will be collecting bacteriological samples in the affected area as the system is restored. As a result, the North Carolina Division of Water Resources advises that when water is restored, water customers boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.
