AVON, N.C. (WAVY) — A boil water advisory was lifted Monday afternoon in Avon after a water main break caused problems with the town’s water system.

The main break along Highway 12 has since been repaired, but officials needed to test the water for possible contaminants after the issue.

Testing came back Monday afternoon and revealed the water sample passed the inspection, meaning the 24-hour water system pressure advisory and boil requirement was lifted.
