Water restored in Town of Andrews

  • Friday, January 31, 2014

Water for the Town of Andrews is back on Friday. Some residents and businesses in the town along the county line between Georgetown and Williamsburg counties lost water pressure late Thursday.

Many homes and businesses went without water.

School was cancelled for the day Friday, but Georgetown County School District officials didn’t learn until early Friday morning that water would not be restored.

About 40 students were brought to school for a few hours Friday, until school personnel were able to confirm a child could be returned home to the care of an adult.

Georgetown County officials sent out the following statement at the request of the Town of Andrews:

All Town of Andrews residents are under a boil water advisory until further notice. Residents are asked to call (843) 264-8666 with any questions or for further information.

The staff of the Georgetown Times is working to gather more information about the situation in Andrews.

Later in the afternoon, Andrews Mayor Rodney Giles said he believes they have found the source of the water pressure issue and closed the valve. He said the pressure is steadily rising and emergency management will test the water for 24 hours.

Mayor Giles said the town issued a full alert as soon as the leak was found.
