— The City of Columbia Water Works has lifted the boil water advisory issued Tuesday for customers in the 1700 and 1800 blocks of Heyward Street, which is near Pickens Street in Richland County.

The City of Columbia experienced a six-inch water main break that could have possibly resulted in the bacterial contamination of the water on those two blocks of Heyward Street.

Following an intense flushing of the distribution system, the City of Columbia Water Works says the results bacteriological samples indicate the water is safe for drinking and cooking purposes.
