Potable water served by the Regional Water Authority of Asheville, Buncombe and Henderson Counties System has been restored. Samples collected from multiple locations within the system have been analyzed in a State Certified Laboratory and found to be free of coliform bacteria.
Based on these results, the continued presence of adequate disinfectant residuals and the maintenance of consistent pressure throughout the system, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources has authorized rescinding the boil water advisory for all areas effective immediately.
Some areas of the water system may continue to experience discolored water, and crews are flushing lines within those areas. Customers who experience discolored water or air in the lines are advised to wait until it is clear before using it. Residents, businesses and industries served by this system are urged to continue to report any leaks or problems to the City of Asheville Customer Services Division at (828) 251-1122.
