Portions of Jackson, South Carolina no longer under a boil water advisory


JACKSON, S.C. (WJBF) — The previous boil water advisory for the Town of Jackson has been lifted.

All customers located inside the city limits except for Highland Circle, Hendrix St., and Ruby St. were under the advisory.

As a precaution, you were asked to boil your water for 1 full minute prior to drinking or cooking until further notice. The advisory was due to an electrical failure at our pump house caused by storms in the area.

“Bacteriological samples were collected and analyzed by an independent lab. The results of this sampling indicate that the system is safe to use for drinking and cooking purposes,” officials added.

If you have questions, call the Town of Jackson at 803-471-2229.
