The city of Pickens has lifted a boil-water advisory that was issued for parts of the city on Tuesday after a water main break.
Cory Cox, the city's public work director, said the advisory was issued for residents that live north of the intersection of Old Fox Squirrel Ridge and the Moorefield Memorial Highway (SC 178). The area includes East Preston McDaniel Road, Cove Creek Road, Holly Springs School Road and Meece Mill Road.
Residents in this area were advised to vigorously boil their water for at least a minute prior to drinking or cooking with it.
The water advisory came after a water main break along Moorefield Memorial Highway. The city said they are working to repair the line.
The city announced Thursday that the advisory was lifted after repairs were complete and tested to ensure safety. Residents are advised they may have air in their lines so they should run their water for several minutes.
