Boil water advisory Feb 8, 2023

A boil advisory has been issued for customers located near the I-20 and I-26 ramp, between Broad River Rd. and Bush River Rd.

According to Columbia Water, crews are working to fix a 12 inch water main break at the 1-20/Broad River interchange. Repairs are being made and service is expected to be restored as quickly as possible. Columbia Water said this could result in bacterial contamination of the water for some customers.

Effected customers should boil their water vigorously for at least one minute before drinking or cooking until otherwise notified by Columbia Water laboratory staff. Any ice made from water that has not been boiled should not be used for drinking purposes.

Contact the City of Columbia Customer Care Center at 803-545-3300 with any other inquiries concerning the advisory. Residents can sign up to receive notices for their area at:

Updates will be provided as they become available.
