MARSHVILLE, NC (WBTV) - A boil water advisory is in effect in Marshville after multiple water main breaks left many residents without water over the weekend.

As of Sunday, the town said that water is back on, but Marshville will remain under a boiled drinking water advisory by the State until quality of water can be determined. The Town will advise residents when the advisory will be lifted.
