Boil Water Advisory
Customers of Valley Public Service Authority
Effective February 12, 2018
The General Manager advises the customers of Valley Public Service Authority Water System residing on Legion Road, Schley Street, Burnhill Road, Howlandville Road, Monroe Street, Dewey Street, Rusty Lane, Malta Place, and Johnson Boulevard, that experienced an interruption in their water service or low water pressure due to an unexpected main break on Monday, February 12, 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.
If you should have any questions concerning this notice, you can contact the water system at (803) 593-2053.
