COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) – The City of Columbia Water Works division is issuing a boil water advisory for some customers in Richland County.

The boil water advisory has been put in place for customers of 2460 and 2470 Decker Boulevard.

The City says the area has experienced an 8-inch water main break. This break could also possibly result in bacterial contamination of the water.

The City of Columbia Water Works division is currently working to fix the problem.

The City is asking for the community in that area to boil their water for at least one minute prior to cooking or drinking until the break is fixed.

Anyone with questions are asked to call the SC DHEC Division of Health Licensing at 803-545-4370 or the City of Columbia Customer Care Call Center at 803-545-3300.
