DUNCAN, SC (FOX Carolina) – The Startex, Jackson, Wellford, Duncan Water District (SJWD) said Wednesday that around 100 people were advised to vigorously boil their water for one full minute prior to consuming, washing dishes, making ice, or brushing teeth until further notice.

The boil water advisory is due to a water main break in the area.

Customers in the following areas are impacted:

  • Duncan Reidville Rd from Rogers Bridge Rd to Berry Shoals Rd.
  • Boiter Rd
  • Brandy Mill Chase Rd.
  • Wilmington Court
  • Rice Planters Lane

The district said they don’t believe the water is compromised but the boil water advisory is simply a precaution as required by DHEC.
