Boil water advisory issued for Timmonsville

The Town Of Timmonsville is advising its residents to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to drinking or cooking, according to Mary Bines, Interim Town Administrator.

The advisory is being issued because of a line break in the Town of Timmonsville system which is located close to a broken sewer line.

There has been no confirmed contamination of the system.

Any ice made from water that has not been boiled should not be used for drinking purposes.

The Town of Timmonsville is presently working to correct the problem.
