CAYCE, SC (WIS) -

A boil water advisory issued by the City of Cayce after Monday's water main break has been extended to Wednesday morning, officials announced today.

Customers are advised to boil their water for at least two minutes until 6 o'clock Wednesday morning. 

"The safety of our community is our top priority," said City Manage Rebecca Vance. "We want to make sure everyone understands the details."

The extension was put into place out of extra precaution and at the advisement of DHEC, officials said.

The city is continuing to flush the system but says customers may still see brown water. If that's the case, you are advised to run the water for a few minutes until it runs clear.

Additional Precautions:

-          Don't drink water or use to cook with before boiling. 

-          Water should be boiled for a minimum of 2 minutes. 

-          All ice should be thrown away

-          Can run dishwashers

-          Do not wash clothes

Bottled water is still available to residents who need it at the City of Cayce Fire Department located at 2 Lavern Jumper Road.

Thousands were without water for approximately 17 hours after a 16-inch water main broke near the water plant early Monday morning.

Lexington School District Two canceled classes at ten schools because of the break. Students returned Tuesday, but were encouraged to bring bottled water.

Members of City Council, City staff and volunteers handed out almost 600 cases of water Wednesday night to residents to ensure that they each had safe drinking water.
