LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC — Columbia Water Works has repealed a boil water advisory for households of three roads near Whitehall Lakes in Lexington County.
The water is now safe to drink, the city said.
A 6-inch water main break prompted the advisory.
Residents on Sterling Bridge Road, Charter House Road and Canterfield Road were told to boil vigorously any water used for drinking or preparing foods for at least 60 seconds before use. Anyone near the affected area who notices a loss of water pressure also was cautioned to boil their water to reduce the risk of bacterial exposure.
