Customers in several Richland County areas under boil water advisory
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) – The City of Columbia Water Works division is asking customers in two different areas of Richland County to boil their water due to water main breaks.
Customers living on the 100 block of Alida Street, all of Solomon Street and all of Ruth Street off of Wilkes Road should boil their water for at least one minute before drinking or cooking.
The area has experienced a 6-inch water main break, which could possibly result in bacterial contamination of the water in that area.
The next water customers who should boil their water are the ones living on Broad River Road from Woodrow Street and Ministry Drive.
Customers in this area are experiencing a repair of a 16-inch water valve. The break could possibly result in bacterial contamination of the water in the area.
City of Columbia crews are in both areas right now working to correct the problem.
Questions concerning healthcare facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities should be directed to the SC DHEC Division of Health Licensing at 803-545-4370.
The City of Columbia Customer Care Call Center, 803-545-3300, may answer other inquiries concerning this Advisory.
