• Boil advisory issued for Boone after water main break


    WATAUGA COUNTY, N.C. - Schools in Watauga County were closed Wednesday after a water main break occurred Tuesday.

    Rick Miller with Boone Public Works said an 8-inch water pipe ruptured on Highway 321 while a contractor was working on the road.

    Both Hardin Park Elementary and Watauga High schools were closed.

    The break has been repaired, but town officials said residents should continue to boil water until they can test the system for contamination.

    The schools were closed after officials said they couldn’t supply enough water for students and for food preparations.
