Lowcountry water department lifts boil water advisory for Levy area

BEAUFORT CO, SC (WTOC) - The Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control has lifted a boil water advisory for the Levy community.

The precautionary advisory to boil water used for drinking or cooking was issued Feb. 18 due to a water main failure around South Okatie Hwy that ended in the residential neighborhood of Telfair plantation.

Additionally, BJWSA suggests residents flush their system by running bathtub and sink faucets for 10 minutes or until the water is clear.
