CARRSVILLE—Residents on the Carrsville water system are asked to boil their drinking and cooking water.

Isle of Wight County spokesman Don Robertson said the water system lost pressure due to the power being out.

“There’s a requirement, when it drops to a certain level, you have to notify people to boil their water,” Robertson said. “There’s always a potential (for contamination). It’s highly unlikely, but there is the likelihood.
