Hendersonville Water Main Break
A water line break in Hendersonville left more than three hundred people without water. Late Thursday night the water was turned on at 8:30pm though Hendersonville officials said it would take several hours for water to be restored for all residents connected to the line.
"I didn't know until my son called me at 3pm and said mom we have no water," said Tanya Dendy of her water being out inside her home. When News 13 stopped by around 7:30pm she showed that all faucets had no water coming out when she turned them on.
"I shower before I go to school in the morning," said Kaitlin Malone who is a student at Henderson East High. "I don't want to go to school without a shower. It's gross."
According to City water officials crews isolated the water system around the water main break located at the intersection of Spartanburg Hwy. and Mt. Airy St.
The North Carolina Division of Water Resources advised that when water is restored, water customers boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued. When bacteriological sampling has been completed and meets or exceeds federal and state requirements the City will issue a release to rescind this Water System Pressure Advisory.
