Boil water advisory for Berkeley County community extended

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Berkeley County Water and Sanitation officials are extending the boil water advisory for the Tram Way community for an additional 24 hours. All residents living in the Tram Way community starting at the intersection of Hwy 17A and Rose Drive will be affected.
 
Authorities say one of the early samples taken in the vicinity of the water main break in the Tramway area has indicted the need for additional flushing. According to officials, this process requires additional sampling and the results will not be available until around noon on Saturday, April 9.
 
Residents are asked to continue boiling all water that is used for drinking, cooking, and making ice prior to use. To ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria, the water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil, and then boiled for an additional minute.
 
Residents can call 843.572.4400 or visit www.bcwsa.com for additional information.
