The Boil Water Advisory for the Devine Street area has been repealed.
The City of Columbia Water Works advises the water customers in the area of 4100 and 4200 Block of Devine Street, Kawana Road, Kipling Drive, Kalmia Drive, and Poinsettia Street, located in Richland County, to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking or cooking. Also, any residents near the affected area who have lost water and/or water pressure are advised to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking or cooking.
The City of Columbia has experienced an eighteen inch water line break. This could possibly result in bacterial contamination of the water on the 4100 and 4200 Block of Devine Street, Kawana Road, Kipling Drive, Kalmia Drive, and Poinsettia Street. Water customers should continue to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking or cooking until otherwise notified by the City of Columbia Water Works. Also, any ice made from water that has not been boiled should not be used for drinking purposes.
The City of Columbia Water Works is presently working to correct the problem. The inbound right lane of Devine Street is currently blocked between Kipling Drive and Poinsettia Street.
