MANTEO — Water to several Cape Hatteras National Seashore facilities will be interrupted temporarily tomorrow (Sept. 1) due to a water line leak in the northern region of Ocracoke Village which includes areas north of the Pony Island Restaurant.
From 6 a.m. until late afternoon, the following Seashore facilities will not have water while the Ocracoke Sanitary District repairs the line:
• NPS Campground
• Ocracoke Day Use Area (Lifeguard Beach)
• Ocracoke Island airport
• Fish cleaning station and dump station on Devil Shoals Road
Portable toilets were delivered to the campground for use while the water line repair occurs. Potable water and flushable toilets are available at the Ocracoke Island Discovery Center at the south end of Ocracoke village across from the ferry docks.
Campground and beach access visitors should ensure they have sufficient water to stay hydrated during high heat conditions tomorrow.
