Asheville boil water advisory cancelled after mudslide damage

Buncombe Co., N.C. (WSPA) — An early morning mudslide closed a road near Asheville and put nearby residents under a boil water advisory. The boil water advisory was lifted Saturday.

Dispatch confirmed Town Mountain Road was blocked shortly before 8 a.m. Friday.

The road is open again.

NCDOT says the water line break caused the mudslide.

As of 6:45 a.m. Friday, Asheville Water Resources Department says an emergency water interruption is impacting the area between Bartrams Walk Drive and Mountain Vista Drive off Town Mountain Road.

Water officials have also issued a boil water advisory for the area. Residents are advised to vigorously boil tap water for one minute before consuming and wait until the water is clear before using after it’s restored.
