A raw water main, owned by the Lower Cape Fear Water and Sewer Authority (LCFWASA), which carries raw water from the Kings Bluff Raw Water Pump Station to Brunswick County-owned Northwest Water Treatment Plant, broke Thursday, Oct. 13. From Oct. 14 through Oct. 18, the hole in the pipe, which was the size of a football increased in diameter by 25 percent, public utilities director Jerry Pierce said.
Water line break repair attempts continue

Despite an unsuccessful first attempt to patch a raw water line break and a continued state of emergency for Brunswick County, officials said residents’ limited water use has kept the water flowing.

County Manager Ann Hardy and public utilities director Jerry Pierce updated county commissioners at a special called meeting Thursday, Oct. 20, on drinking water availability and the second attempt to fix the water pipe.
