Officials with the Greer Commission of Public Works (CPW) and Blue Ridge Rural Water Company both lifted their precautionary boil water advisory this evening.
Blue Ridge Rural Water canceled its notice of the boil water advisory for its customers effective 6 p.m. CPW followed two hours later.
Test results confirm that water in the system is safe to drink and can be used as normal, CPW announced Tuesday evening.
Customers who wish to flush old water out of their internal plumbing may do so at this time. Flushing the system will draw new water into the home. See instructions below.
A water main break at Greer CPW’s water treatment site near Lake Cunningham caused almost 20,000 residents to lose water overnight and have a boil water advisory before drinking or cooking in effect until at least Tuesday evening.
Residents are advised to boil water for at least two minutes.
The Air Force Junior ROTC instructors and cadets of Blue Ridge High School earned an overall unit assessment “Exceeds Standards”, the highest rating attainable, during their rated unit evaluation last month.
The cadets performed well in leading and accomplishing their unit goals.
