Update: Water service is restored.
Burke County Water Customers in the vicinity of Music Mountain Road and Highway 18 South are being affected by a disruption in service as repairs are being made due to a water main break caused by the recent flooding.
Piedmont Utilities are on site at the intersection of Music Mountain Road and Highway 18 South to repair an 8” water main break and Burke County General Services staff are repairing a 4” line further south. Once these repairs are made, the system will be put back in service. However, citizens may experience brown or discolored water coming from their faucet. If this occurs, please run your water for a few minutes or until the water is clear.
Repairs are expected to be completed around noon and updates will be provided as they become available.
If you have any questions, please contact the Burke County General Services Water & Sewer office at 828-764-9064. Thank you for your patience and understanding while the necessary repairs are made.
