Boil water advisory issued for Georgetown
GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - People who live in the city of Georgetown are being asked to boil their water for the next 24 hours.
Officials said crews are working to repair a leak discovered by the city’s utility department.
Officials said the line break caused the loss of pressure and service to many customers in the city and may have affected the entire city water system.
There has been no confirmation of contamination in the system, but the potential for contamination exists because of the loss of pressure, officials said.
The city asked residents to boil their water for one full minute before drinking or cooking and said any ice made from water that hasn’t been boiled should not be used.
Residents are asked to call 843-545-4500 with any questions about the advisory.
