Water main break on Remount Rd. affecting traffic, elementary school
Water service in an area of Hanahan remains off as crews continue to repair a water main break.
North Charleston fire and police departments dealt with a water main break on Remount Road at Yeamans Hall Road Wednesday morning and another on Thursday.
Principal Janice Malone said some parents decided to keep their children home Thursday, but not all parents can make that accommodation.
Earlier Thursday, Charleston County School District spokesman Andy Pruitt confirmed the water outage at the school.
"Charleston County School District staff members brought portable toilets and bottled water to the facility," Pruitt said.
School leaders said children who stayed home Thursday because of the water outage would receive an excused absence.
Thursday’s break closed a portion of the road temporarily.
