Water Line Break Prompts Boil Water Advisory


By News Department

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) - Some Midlands residents will have to take an extra step to use their water.

The City of Columbia has issued a boil water advisory for customers of the Ascot Subdivision between Kennerly and Hollingshed Roads. That's until further notice.

Officials say it was brought on by a 12 inch water line break that could contaminate the water in that area.

Those affected are asked to boil their water for at least a full minute before drinking or cooking.
