Severy back under boil water advisory

Severy back under boil water advisory.
Email Barely a day after Severy had a boil water advisory rescinded, a new advisory has been issued.
The overall reason is the same — low water pressure — but the underlying situation is different.
Greenwood County Emergency Management Director Levi Vinson says a pair of water main breaks took place Thursday.
On Monday, a valve issue led to a boil water advisory.
Once again, town residents have to take several steps to make sure their water is safe: *Boil water for one minute before drinking or preparing food.
*Get rid of current ice cubes and do not use ice from a household automatic ice maker.
*Disinfect dishes for at least a minute by using a solution of one teaspoon of unscented bleach for every gallon of water.
Food preparation surfaces also need to be disinfected using this method.
The adivsory is in effect until further notice.
