UNC-Notre Dame postponed to Sunday at 1 p.m.

North Carolina and Notre Dame’s Saturday night matchup is postponed after a water shortage hit Chapel Hill, the school announced on Friday.

The two teams were scheduled to play at 6 p.m. in the Dean E. Smith Center on Saturday, but the game has been moved to Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. The new location will be at the Greensboro Coliseum, about an hour west of Chapel Hill.

The University canceled classes Friday at 1 p.m. due to the emergency.

The Tar Heels also canceled their weekly press conference.

The Orange Water and Sewer Authority — the water provider for Orange County, where Chapel Hill is located — released a statement Friday afternoon that included a Do Not Drink Order and a Do Not Use Order:

"Do Not Drink Order

Due to low pressure in the OWASA service area we are not sure if the water is safe for consumption. Until testing has been completed, the Orange County Health Department is issuing a Do Not Drink order. Boiling water is not recommended. Only bottled water is recommended.

Do Not Use Order

Because of the water main break and the subsequent shortage, we are also issuing a Do Not Use order. Bottled water should be used for all water needs including flushing toilets, washing hands, cooking, etc…

Restaurants

All restaurants served by OWASA are being ordered closed by the Orange County Health Director"
