BOIL WATER ADVISORY 5/14/18

Boil Water Advisory

To

Customers of Valley Public Service Authority

Effective May 14, 2018

 

The General Manager advises the customers of Valley Public Service Authority Water System residing on or near Jefferson Davis Highway in the Jon Road and Greenville Road area in Warrenville, that experienced an interruption in their water service or low water pressure due to an unexpected main break on May 14, 2018 to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking or cooking, until further notice.

 

There has been no confirmed contamination of the system. However, because of the interruption in service, the potential for contamination exists. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, the customers of the water system that have experienced an interruption in service or low water pressure are advised to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking or cooking once service is restored, until notified otherwise. Also, any ice made from water which has not been boiled should not be used for drinking purposes.

 

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) is presently working with the water system to handle the problem.

 

We will update our website www.valleypublic.org with more information, as it becomes available. If you should have any questions concerning this notice, you can contact the water system at (803) 593-2053.
