City of Columbia Water Dept. Issues Boil Water Advisory in Forest Acres

Posted Tuesday, August 9, 2016

The City of Columbia Water Works advises the water customers of Meadowood Road-from Briarwood Road to N Trenholm Road, 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 a twelve inch water main break.  This could possibly result in bacterial contamination of the water on Meadowood Road- from Briarwood Road to N Trenholm Road.  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.
