Boil water advisory lifted in Cypress Gardens, Bushy Park area

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with Berkeley County Water and Sanitation say that a boil water advisory for residents in the area of Cypress Gardens and Bushy Park  has been lifted.

BCWS had issued the boil water advisory on Tuesday following Monday's collapsed overpass and train derailment on Cypress Gardens Road.

Before the water was restored, Linda Welch was one of many residents who didn't have water at home.

"Lord, what am I gonna do? How am I going to wash and take a bath," Welch said.

Resident Annette Creek crossed over the bridge ten minutes before it collapsed.

"It kind of scared me when I thought about it and realizing that bridge fell," Creek said.

Berkeley County officials were at one point lending a helping hand, by delivering boxes of bottled water to homes affected. Creek used her pool to take care of some other business.

"I have pool water so you have to carry a bucket into the house and flush out toilets with pool water. We can't do any laundry, that's obvious," Creek said.

The cause of the bridge collapse and train derailment is under investigation by the NTSB and SCDOT. A CSX spokesperson said in a statement on Monday that the train served the Charleston area and had two locomotives and 72 rail cars at the time of the incident. According to CSX, four empty cars derailed, and there were no injuries.
