New Ellenton urged to boil water

  • Follow Latest News

An advisory to boil water continues today for parts of New Ellenton and Aiken.

Harold Craig, of the New Ellenton Commission of Public Works, said the advisory should stay in effect today for South Boundary Avenue at South Carolina Highway 19 south to U.S. Highway 278, Sizemore Street, Pineview Street, Dogwood Avenue and all of the Melrose subdivision.

Mr. Craig said a construction crew hit a main line Tuesday when putting in a drain on Sizemore Street, so officials called for a precautionary advisory. He said two tests of the area’s water will be conducted before the advisory is lifted.
