System Pressure Advisory Rescinded for James City Area 

Craven County Water Customers

New Bern, N.C. – Potable water served by the Craven County Water System (NCPWS ID # 04-25-055) has been restored to near capacity after a water main line break at the Elder and Old Cherry Point Road horizontal boring site.

Samples collected from multiple locations within the system have been analyzed by a State Certified Laboratory and found to be free of coliform bacteria.

Based on these results and the continued presence of consistent pressure throughout the system, the System Pressure Advisory issued July 17, 2019 for the James City area is rescinded effective immediately.

Persons served by this system are urged to continue to manage their water usage and consumption, and report any leaks or problems to the Craven County Water Department at (252) 636-6615.
