Boil water advisory lifted for Pitt County residents

PITT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – A boil water advisory for some Pitt County residents has been lifted.

Stokes Regional Water Corporation says about a thousand customers were impacted by the water leak after a fire hydrant was hit on Old Creek Road Thursday morning.

The utility says the areas affected were from Pactolus to the end of Clarks Neck Road.

Tests back this afternoon show no bacteria in the system so the boil water advisory has been immediately lifted.
