A boil water advisory has been issued for residents in the Country Club area of Lake City after a car crashed into a fire hydrant Thursday night on Country Club Road causing water pressure to drop, according to Lake City Public Works Director Rickey Simms.

Simms said the pressure is back to normal, but the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control requires them to issue a boil water advisory anytime there's a drop in pressure.

He said samples of the water will be tested for any contamination, but he feels confident that the testing will come out negative for contamination.

We'll let you know when the advisory is lifted.
