Water line work in RADTIP causes low pressure, service disruption

Press release from the City of Asheville:

Contract work in the River Arts District on Lyman Street has caused a blow-out in a water line that has created low pressure or no water service to a large area.

The blow-out happened early Monday morning but has been found and isolated.

The City hopes to have service restored on Monday morning.

For customers who had no water during the outage, they will need to follow a Boil Water Advisory. Those customers are being contacted by the Water Department via AVL Alert.
