BLOWING ROCK, N.C. (WBTV) – The Town of Blowing Rock’s Public Works department has repaired a major water line break.

According to a post on the town’s Facebook page, residents could have expected to be experiencing low water pressure or no water at all.

The repair was complete at 8 p.m. Monday on the 8-inch water main. The town’s water service should slowly start to be restored.

“Please remember there will be air in the lines so please let the cold water run until your water runs with consistent pressure,” the town wrote. “If your water does not flow normally from faucets, remove (unscrew) the screen at the end of your faucet and run water over to rinse out any gravel that may be present.”

The water Boil Water Advisory is still in effect until further notice as the water system is being repaired.

Town officials and the American Red Cross set up a distribution point earlier for bottled water at the Blowing Rock American Legion Building, located at 333 Wallingford St.
