Jones Ferry Road Closed in Carrboro between Bim Street and Barnes Street

November 5, 2018 8:25AM – A main water line leaving OWASA’s Jones Ferry Road Water Treatment Plant has broken. All OWASA customers in Chapel Hill and Carrboro should limit water use to only essential purposes. The main break is actively draining OWASA’s water storage, and crews are on-site to isolate the break.

Please limit use to drinking and basic hygiene. We need to conserve the water in the system as we work to isolate and repair the break.

Jones Ferry Road is closed between Bim Street and Barnes Street in Carrboro.

Please monitor OWASA’s Twitter handle @OWASA1 and OWASA’s website www.owasa.org for updates on information.
