Avon residents and visitors asked to conserve water after line break

Due to a water line break between Avon and Buxton on Hatteras Island, the Dare County Water Department is requesting that all water users in Avon reduce their water consumption in an effort to sustain a pressurized water system within the village.

Crews are currently working to repair the water line break; however, it will be this evening before the break is repaired.

The Dare County Water Department appreciates the public’s cooperation in reducing the water consumption until the equipment is fully repaired and production is restored to full capacity.

For more information, contact the Dare County Water Department at 252-475-5990 or water@darenc.com.
