Pelzer Water Main break


Pelzer town workers and West Utilities worked into the night Tuesday to repair a break in an 8 inch water main. The break, on Orr St., was discovered Tuesday about 2 p.m.

Pelzer residents in the upper mill village area were being advised to boil their water for drinking or cooking . Water samples have been taken and are being evaluated, according to Pelzer Town Clerk Heather Holcombe.

The water main break was on Orr St. in the upper mill village of Pelzer, Holcombe said. Only upper mill residents around Tabernacle Church were without water. Orr St. was temporarily closed  Wednesday while repairs on the line were being finalized. Residents who did not have an interruption of service are not under the boil water advisory. Results on water sample testing should be complete sometime Thursday, town officials said.
