ISLE OF PALMS WATER AND SEWER COMMISSION
BOIL WATER ADVISORY
November 5, 2018
 
The contractor installing the storm drain system along Palm Blvd. broke the water main feeding 49th Avenue.  There has been no confirmed contamination of the system, however, because of the loss of water pressure, the potential for contamination does exist. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, the customers of the Isle of Palms Water and Sewer Commission (IOPWSC) in this area are advised to vigorously boil their water for at least one full minute prior to drinking or cooking, until notified otherwise by the IOPWSC.
 
Also, any ice made from water which has not been boiled, should not be used for drinking purposes. Commission personnel are working to restore pressure and service to this area.  If you should have any questions concerning this advisory, you may call the IOPWSC at (843) 886-6148.
 
A Boil Water Advisory is a precautionary measure advising people to boil their tap water before using it.  Boil water advisories are issued after an event that could allow bacteria to enter the water distribution system. Such events include a large water main break, a widespread loss of system pressure, or a natural disaster.

Because it takes at least 16 hours to get test results for bacteria, a Boil Water Advisory is a precautionary measure issued until test results confirm the water is safe. Boiling water for at least one minute will kill bacteria, if any are present.




CHECK, CASH, AND/OR MONEY ORDERS ARE ACCEPTED FOR BILL PAY.
PLEASE SEE OUR AUTOMATIC DRAFT SERVICES FORM TO AVOID LATE PAYMENTS.
