Alert Carolina Informational Email: Portions of South Road closed due to water line leak

Students, faculty and staff:

South Road between Raleigh Street and Country Club Road is closed while the Orange Water and Sewage Authority (OWASA) repairs a water line. Water in that area is currently shut off and a boil water advisory will be issued to impacted customers when water is restored. Read more about boil water advisories.

Repairs to the line could take several hours and may impact the morning commute and regular transit services. Visit for any changes to regular campus transportation services or for changes to Chapel Hill Transit.

About Informational Messages: The University sends an Informational Message when a situation is not an emergency nor does it pose an immediate threat to the campus community but is of significant interest to campus. This includes tornado watches and severe thunderstorm warnings, updates to crime alerts, or significant campus safety information or activity.  The University will send a campus-wide email message.
