Ft Bragg main water supply line repairs on schedule

Posted: Updated:
FORT BRAGG, N.C. -

Fort Bragg officials have declared a water shortage emergency after the main supply line at the post was damaged Thursday.

Carolyn Hinton with Fayetteville Public Works Commission said the repairs are going as planned.

THE PWC anticipates the line to be fully repaired Saturday. Once the repair is complete, Fort Bragg will determine if water restrictions need to be lifted.

The main water line that supplies Fort Bragg has a break and requires immediate repairs. The repairs are expected to require over 24 hours to complete.

During this time, Fort Bragg's only water supply will be the emergency connection near East Fort Bragg. 

To ensure no loss of water supply to the installation, residents are urged to abide the following  guidelines:

  • There shall be no watering of any lawns or plants.
  • There shall be no washing of vehicles or outside areas.
  • There shall be no filling of any pond, fountain, or pool.
  • Restaurants shall serve water only at the customer's request.
  • There shall be no use of water from hydrants for purposes other than fire suppression or a public emergency.

When the Water Shortage Alert is lifted, another notification will be sent to all Fort Bragg water users.  Please contact Old North Utility Services at 910-495-1311 if you have any questions.
