Hendersonville, NC – August 19, 2011: Blythe Construction Co. and Hendersonville Water and Sewer crews just completed a new water main construction project in this area which resulted in a scheduled water outage to customers served by City water in the Upward Rd. area east of I-26 this morning. The City experienced low or no water pressure in this affected which will increase the potential for back-siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the City’s water system. The affected portions of the water system are being flushed at this and will be tested.

Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water. Bacteriological testing will be performed in the affected areas that have lost water pressure before this advisory can be lifted
