The 12th ranked Tar Heels’ February 4th match-up against 20th ranked Notre Dame has been postponed to February 5th after a water crisis halted things in Chapel Hill.
Due to a shutdown of the Jones Ferry Road Water Treatment Plant and a major water main break Friday morning on the northeast side of Chapel Hill, near Dobbins Drive, the water supply in the OWASA system reached very low levels, officials said. A state of emergency was declared for Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
Officials said using water could result in contamination of the OWASA system. Customers were encouraged to use bottled water for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene. Bottled water can also be used to flush a toilet after pouring the water into the tank, officials said. Ice made after 11:00 a.m. should be discarded
Officials said water will not be safe for use until Saturday afternoon at the earliest.
Sunday’s game will be played at the Greensboro Coliseum at 1pm and all tickets will be honored. It will be broadcast on the radio on the Tar Heel Sports Network
