A precautionary boil advisory was issued Friday morning for some residents along Route K just south of Columbia, including the Gateway South subdivision, due to a leak in a water main.
According to Consolidated Public Water Supply District No. 1, the boil water advisory, issued Thursday morning, should last until Saturday morning.
Until then, customers are advised to boil water vigorously for at least three minutes before use and use only water that has been boiled for drinking, brushing teeth, and all food preparation. Customers should not use ice from automatic icemakers, either.
Water for bathing does not need to be boiled.
