SPRING LAKE, N.C. (AP) - At least one North Carolina town has suspended disconnecting residents’ water over unpaid bills amid the state’s oppressive heat.

Spring Lake Town Manager Tad Davis says officials in the Cumberland County town believe the temporary suspension is the right move because water access is especially important when temperatures are so high. The National Weather Service says the daily high temperature in nearby Fayetteville so far this month has been 91 degrees or higher except for one day.

Spring Lake is about 10 miles north of Fayetteville, where the high hit 100 on Wednesday.

The Fayetteville Observer reports (https://bit.ly/2axK72l ) that town officials say customers will be billed as usual and late fees will be assessed.
