Portion of Gervais Street reopened as crews continue to repair water main break

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Officials with the City of Columbia have reopened a portion of Gervais Street that was closed due to a water main break.

The break happened because of a contractor error where a water main was broken. Gervais Street from Pickens Street to Bull Street was closed until repairs were completed.

Columbia Water apologizes for any inconvenience that this may have caused to their customers.

The break affects customers in the area including USC School of Law. At this point, the boil water advisory is still in effect for the surrounding area.
