OWASA is repairing a water line in front of 214 W. Cameron Ave in Chapel Hill. The water has been shut off and a boil water advisory will be issued once the service is restored.

West Cameron Avenue between Wilson Street and Pittsboro Street will be closed until the repair has been made. Traffic is being rerouted.

While we work to repair the water line, through traffic is being maintained. We are taking measures to control the runoff of sediment into storm drains which discharge into creeks and streams. While we complete our repairs, residents may notice sediment in the street and cloudy water in ditches and streams around the area of the break.

Water line repairs normally take four to six hours to complete, but the actual duration depends on conditions and repairs may take more or less time.

Eight customers and zero hydrants will be affected.

Customers that are affected can contact OWASA for bottled water.
