OKATIE, SC (WSAV) – Officials lift the boil advisory for Levy community.

Beaufort Jasper Water and Sewer Authority (BJWSA) and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) announced today that the latest water sample analyses indicate the water in the Levy area between Shad Road and the SCAD Center is free from bacteria and is safe for human consumption.

BJWSA say a break in a waterline on January 5th caused water pressure to drop leading to the boil water advisory.

BJWSA suggests that you flush your system, running bathtub and sink faucets for 10 minutes or until the water is clear.
