COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Crews are on the scene of a water main break on Zimalcrest Drive near the I-26 and I-20 interchange.

The road is temporarily closed near The Grove at St. Andrews Apartment Complex.

Officials with Columbia Water say the break occurred on a 10″ inch water main and could possibly result in bacterial contamination of the water on Zimalcrest Drive between Bending Tree Lane and Center Point Circle.

Columbia Water Laboratory staff advises residents in that area, as-well-as any residents near the affected area who have lost water and/or water pressure, to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to drinking or cooking.

Columbia Water staff also advises that any ice made from water that has not been boiled should not be used for drinking purposes.

Columbia Water staff is currently working to correct the problem.
