Boil Water Advisory for the Customers of Hopkins Community Water System
Sunday, March 17, 2013

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - The Richland County Utilities Department advises the customers of the Hopkins Water System, in the 1000-1200 Block of Clarkson Rd. located in Richland County to vigorously boil their water for at least one (1) full minute prior to drinking or cooking. Also, any ice made from water which has not been boiled should not be used for drinking purposes.

A small line break/system failure has resulted in a loss of pressure service to some of the customers of the Hopkins Water System in the above named area. There has been no confirmed contamination of the system. However, because potential for contamination exists, the customers of the water system are advised to follow this advisory note, as a precautionary measure, until otherwise notified by the Department.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) and repair contractor are presently working with the owner of the system to correct the problem.
