Florence area boil water advisory now lifted


FLORENCE, SC (WBTW) – The City of Florence announced on Thursday the Wednesday boil water advisory for some residents has now been lifted.

City of Florence Water customers of the Williamsburg Circle Subdivision, including Williamsburg Circle, Springdale, and 602 East McIver Road were advised to boil their tap water vigorously for one minute prior to using it for drinking or cooking.

A water main break caused the disruption of service to the water customers in this area. Staff were on-site working to complete the repair to restore water service to the affected customers.

There had been no confirmed contamination of the system. However, because of the loss of pressure a slight potential for bacteriological contamination existed, according to the city.

Any ice made from water that had not been boiled should not be
used for drinking purposes.

Anyone with questions can call the City of Florence at 843-665-3236 or DHEC at 843-661-4825.
