The Boil Water Advisory for Statesville has been lifted.
There is no longer any need for citizens to boil water before consuming or using it.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this unfortunate event.
Statesville officials have just announced that water quality tests confirmed the city's water is safe.
Statesville Water Resources Assistant Director Jerry Byerly said tests completed at various locations throughout the city's water system indicated that no e. coli exists within the system. As a result, he said there is no need for citizens to continue boiling water before consuming or using it.
State officials have allowed the City to rescind its 'system pressure advisory, which means that Statesville water customers are no longer advised to boil water for consumption purposes. According to Byerly, water samples were collected on Wednesday, July 27, and then analyzed according to state requirements. Analysis showed that Statesville’s water continues to be one of the highest quality drinking waters produced in the state.
On Wednesday morning, an advisory was issued as a precautionary measure due to a significant drop of pressure in the city’s water system following a water main break near the Water Treatment Plant on Pump Station Rd. The low pressure prompted the state to require Statesville to issue the advisory that encouraged citizens to boil any water before consumption.
The Statesville Leisure Pool will open today from 3 until 8 p.m. today ($3 for adults; $2 for 12 and under) and return to a regular schedule tomorrow.
