FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WNCN) — Fort Bragg officials are asking those on post to limit their water use and have issued a boil advisory after a water main broke Friday morning, according to a Facebook post by the military installation.

According to the note, which was posted just before 7 a.m., crews on post are working to fix the water main, but it’s expected it will take hours to repair and get the water supply back.

Officials have asked everyone “to limit their use of water and to boil water for at least the next 24 hours.”

The post says that the priority is to “keep water flowing to mission critical areas.” Because of that, “water has been turned off to various areas.”

Officials said they will provide more information as it becomes available.
