CARY, N.C. (WNCN) — A water main break in Morrisville from Friday was fixed on Saturday, but Cary city officials say that some residents in Morrisville and Cary should still boil their water.
The pipe break happened Friday along Chapel Hill Road between Airport Boulevard to Southport Drive, City of Cary officials said in a press release.
Crews worked through the night to repair the water main break, which was caused by a private contractor.
