DPU issues boil water advisory.
The City of Orangeburg Department of Public Utilities, as a precautionary measure, advises its water customers in the Cottonwood Drive area to boil their water before using it for drinking or cooking.
The advisory applies to Cottonwood Drive customers from the intersection of Cottonwood Drive and Millcreek Lane to the intersection of Cottonwood Drive and Oleander Drive, including Riverbirch Drive, Misty Pines Lane, Oleander Drive and Shore Drive.
DPU customers in the affected areas are asked to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to cooking or drinking.
Also, water customers in the vicinity of the affected area who lost water or water pressure are also advised to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to cooking or drinking.
The DPU Water Division has experienced a six-inch water main break in this vicinity.
Water customers should continue to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to cooking or drinking until otherwise notified by DPU.
The Orangeburg DPU Water Division is presently working to correct the problem.
