LENOIR, N.C. (WBTV) - Due to low pressure in the City of Lenoir water system, customers in Lenoir and Caldwell County were advised to boil water for human consumption on Saturday. That advisory has been lifted.

In addition to City of Lenoir water customers, the advisory covered Baton Water Corporation, Caldwell County, Joyceton Waterworks, and the Town of Sawmills, all of which purchase water from the City of Lenoir.

Water consumers of the City of Lenoir in Caldwell County were experiencing periods of low pressure and higher than normal turbidities in the distribution system due to treatment process/equipment problems at the water treatment plant.

The advisory is no longer active.
