Orange Water and Sewer Authority is asking customers in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro community to not use the water. Water supplies in the storage tanks are being exhausted due to a major water main break. There was also an issue with flouride.
Customers are encouraged to use bottled water for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene. Customers can use bottled water to flush a toilet, after pouring water into the tank. If a toilet does not have a tank, it may be possible to pour water into the bowl to flush.
