GEORGETOWN, SC – The City of Georgetown repealed a boil water advisory issued Tuesday. A press release from Water Utilities Manager, Will Cook, stated the water was tested with favorable results. Anyone with questions can call 843-545-4500.
A major line break in the water distribution system has resulted in a loss of pressure and service to many water customers in the city.
The break may have affected the entire water system in the city. There has been no confirmed contamination of the system. However, because of loss of pressure the potential for contamination exists.
Residents are advised to vigorously boil their water for one minute prior to cooking or drinking until further notice.
Ice made by the water that has not been boiled should not be used.
City employees are working to correct the problem as soon as possible.
