VIDEO: St. George lifts boil water advisory

ST. GEORGE, S.C. (WCSC) - The St. George Water Department says residents living in a block of Highway 78 affected by a water line break no longer need to boil their water before using it.

The break, caused by a contractor on Monday, prompted the second boil water advisory in the St. George area in less than a week.

The advisory applied to people living in the block of Highway 78 from Metts to Bryant, Bryant to Raysor, Rayor to Metts and Metts back to Highway 78, but was lifted Wednesday after laboratory tests revealed there were no dangerous bacteria in the system.

A boil water advisory was issued on Thursday for a different part of St. George because of a broken water line. That advisory was also lifted.
