AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WJBF) — Some Valley Public Service Authority customers under a boil water advisory no longer need to boil their water.
On October 30, officials announced water service was interrupted to perform “unforeseen system repairs.” Once water service is restored, those customers that experienced an interruption in their water service, or low water pressure, are advised to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to drinking or cooking, until further notice.
We’re told following intense flushing of the distribution system, water samples from bacteriological testing were collected and analyzed by Breezy Hill Laboratories. The results of the sampling indicate that the water is safe to use for drinking and cooking purposes.
The affected residents live in the following areas:
- Augusta Road from Cemetery Road to Hitchcock Parkway
- Hitchcock Parkway from Augusta Road to Highway #1
- White Ash Street
- Bayberry Street
- Jon Road
- Crabapple Lane
- Springwood Loop
- Egret Lane
- Beech Street
