Hamlet Boil Order Lifted

Hamlet’s drinking water is once again back to normal. The town’s water customers were under a boil order for four days, before it was lifted Wednesday afternoon.

Water and Wastewater Operator Henry Ruiz told the town council Wednesday that employees will be going door-to-door to distribute the cancellation notices. “We have to keep a copy of the cancellation and the order,” he added. “And I have to write a report, and then we have to send it downstate.”

Town officials say the issues were caused by a recent water main break.
