Boil order in Cary ends Wednesday

A boil order issued by the village of Cary on Monday night ended Wednesday morning.

A “significant water main break” near True Value Manufacturing earlier this week caused many properties in the areas south and west of downtown Cary to experience low water pressure or a complete loss of water. This included the Brigadoon, Cary Woods and Cary Pointe subdivisions, and some of the immediate surrounding areas in the vicinity of the High Road water tower.

Only those who had completely lost water were supposed to comply with the boil order, said Eric Morimoto, director of Public Works for Cary.

The water main break led to Cary-Grove High School and all Cary District 26 schools to close Tuesday, but they reopened Wednesday after the break was fixed and water was restored.

As of 3 p.m. Tuesday, water pressure throughout the village had returned to normal.
