Water boil advisory for Richland County
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Columbia Water advised residents living in certain areas of Richland County on Monday to boil their water due to an 8-inch water main break.
According to a press release, residents living on Makeway Drive from Earlwood Drive to Westbury Drive should boil their water for at least a minute prior to using it.
