A precautionary boil advisory was issued Tuesday for Stick Ross Mountain Water Company in Cherokee County.

The water company says some customers are without water and others are experiencing low water pressure.

As a result, the DEQ has recommended that customers be advised that due to a loss of pressure there is a potential for contamination.

The drinking water supplied by Stick Ross Mountain Water Company may be unsafe for human consumption.

The DEQ says you can take these steps to help ensure safety.

  • Bring water to a full, rolling boil for at least one minute before drinking, consumption, food preparation, baby formula preparation, dish washing, tooth brushing, ice making, wound care, and bathing infants who may ingest bath water.
  • Also, bottled water is a safe alternative.

The advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
