Forsyth County issued a boil water advisory on Thursday, Oct. 27, for the Whisper Point Subdivision off Dahlonega Highway in north Forsyth.
According to the county, water has been shut off to customers in the subdivision due to a leaking valve. Crews are now onsite and working to restore water service to the neighborhood "as quickly as possible."
Residents in the area should boil their water before drinking, cooking or preparing baby food until the boil advisory is lifted, and it should be boiled for at least minute after reaching a full boil.
The boil advisory will be in effect until notified otherwise by the Forsyth County Department of Water and Sewer.
Until then, residents on the following roads should follow boil advisory protocols:
- Echos Cove
