BELTON, SC (WSPA) – Water repair has been completed in Belton and crews are working to bring the system back up to normal pressure after the City of Belton Combined Utilities advised customers located inside and outside the City limit areas of a Boil Water Advisory.
They said you needed to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to drinking or cooking, until notified otherwise by the City of Belton Combined Utilities.
Also, any ice made from water which has not been boiled, should not be used for drinking purposes.
A vehicle accident happened around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
It caused a large loss of water pressure and service to some customers with the City of Belton Combined Utilities.
The city says there has been no confirmed contamination of the system, but the loss of pressure can cause the potential for contamination.
