LEXINGTON, S.C. (WIS) - The Town of Lexington has lifted an advisory that was issued to a “small number” of people to stop using Lake Murray for recreational activities because of a sewer line break.

Around 12 p.m. officials shared a notice on its Facebook page, saying it distributed a letter to everyone who could possibly be impacted by the sewage spill in the lake.

The affected area was in the proximity of 3340 Highway 378, according to the post. That’s near the Hollow Creek Marina, in the Twin Bridges area of the lake, near Gilbert.

Officials said “the remainder of the lake was normal.”

Shortly before 5 p.m. officials announced that the advisory had been lifted and the test samples take from the affected area came back clear.
