Linville Ridge - Repair and Boil Water Advisory 8/10/2022

Customers will experience water outages in the distribution system due to a repair in your area today.  Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increase the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system.

As a precautionary measure, once water is restored consumers boil all water used for human consumption (including, drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation). As an alternative, bottled water may be used.  The North Carolina Division of Water Resources Public Water Supply Section has been contacted concerning this event.

Vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.    

This office is strongly urging water consumers to conserve water whenever possible.  Customers will be notified by a second phone notification message once the Boil Advisory has been rescinded.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience.  If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-525-7990.

Mountain Air - Meter Replacement Project Starting on July 5, 2022

Over the next few weeks, Carolina Water Service Inc. of NC (CWSNC) will be installing water meters at all the residential homes and condominiums we serve. CWSNC will install new advanced metering infrastructure meters (“AMI”) that wirelessly transmit a meter read, eliminating the need for a manual reading.

AMI is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic and status data from water meters and transferring the data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analysis. This system eliminates periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter. This data, coupled with analysis, can help both CWSNC and customers better control water consumption (usage).

Our Staff will not have to open the meter boxes to obtain the reads. This technology is especially beneficial in mountain areas where weather may cause manual reading problems (snow, ice, etc.) and will help us ensure accurate and timely billings to our customers.

CWSNC has awarded the installation contract to Core & Main of Asheville to complete the installation of the water meters. Core & Main and Freeman Construction will be onsite to conduct the meter replacement project.

Installation is scheduled to begin on July 5th for the next four months

All Core & Main employees and subcontractors will have completed background checks and act professionally.

CWSNC staff will work closely with our contractors to minimize any inconvenience and ensure that your property is restored.

Core & Main or subcontractors will contact customers prior to the meter installation and the entire process should take less than an hour during which the water service will be shut off.

 

CWSNC and Core & Main thank you for your cooperation in making this a successful project and we thank you for your patience while the meter replacement is in progress.
