Asheville residents without water after line break

ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Some Asheville residents were without water Thursday morning after a main water line broke along Brevard Road.

City officials said water service was interrupted on Brevard Road from Interstate 26 to Sardis Road. The break happened in front of the Ingles grocery store at 863 Brevard Rd.

The affected area extended to the Ridgefield residential area, Wedgefield Drive, Wedgefield Place, Rocky Ridge and Pacoda Street.

Several businesses, including Ingles, Toys R Us and surrounding hotels were affected, as was the Asheville Fire station on Rocky Ridge Road.

Crews were working to repair the line by 5 p.m. The city's Citizen's Alert emergency messaging system was used to alert affected customers, and businesses were notified by a Water Resources representative.

Surrounding areas may experience no water to low pressure during the interruption, and once crews finish the work, the affected area may experience discolored water or air in the lines.

Customers were advised to wait until the water is clear before using it.
