Boil water advisory issued for some Aiken residents

AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

A boil water advisory is in effect for some residents in the Aiken area, according to the Aiken utilities department.

An 8-inch water main at Richland Avenue and Old Wagener Road broke Tuesday night. Crews completed repairs to the water main Wednesday morning.

One lane of Richland Avenue remains closed while crews repair the roadway. 

Residents in the area who were without water because of the break should boil their water for one minute before using it for cooking or drinking. The boil water advisory is in effect for the next two hours.

Anyone city-wide who notices cloudy water should run the water until it is clear before drinking. 

Residents with questions can call Rebecca Stoll with the City of Aiken Engineering and Utilities at 803-642-7617.
