Greer CPW crews were able to isolate a water main break to a 10-inch water line so no boil water advisory will be needed by Greer Memorial Hospital and the Children's Medical Center.

A water main was hit by a contractor at the intersection of South Buncombe and Brushy Creek Roads around 2 p.m.

These two medical organizations never lost water service due to CPW working with the fire department to run 500 feet of hose line from one hydrant to the other- providing water to the hospital. 

One business, CIA, a car dealership will be under a boil water advisory.  

CPW crews are working to fix the water main break and should have work completed around 7 p.m. CPW will cover the hole back up but it will then be up to the contractor to make pavement repairs.
