A Boil Water Advisory has been issued in the Town of Four Oaks. The Advisory was issued on Thursday for homes and businesses on West Wellons Street (US 301) from Main Street to Smith Street.

A fire hydrant was apparently damaged in an accident causing a waterline to break. Water pressure was lost to some customers in the area.

While repairs have been made, utility officials are waiting for the results of water samples that were sent to a lab to make sure the water is safe to drink. The Boil Water Advisory will be in effect for 48 hours or until satisfactory results are received from the laboratory according to Kristy Baker, Assistant Town Clerk.
