— Some water customers in a neighborhood between Pine Belt Road and N. Beltline Blvd. have been advised to boil water following a water main break in Richland County.

In addition, residents of Azalea Avenue and the 4200 and 4300 blocks of Wilmot Avenue off Rosewood Drive are urged to boil water for at least 60 seconds before drinking or using in cooking.

Also, any residents living near the affected areas who have lost water or water pressure are advised to boil water.

Customers with questions should call (803) 545-3300.
