A 12” water main supplying the Leesville District burst this morning at approximately 5:45 am resulting in a water loss of approximately 250,000  to 300,000 gallons of water.  The break has been located and isolated.  Crews are onsite and the repair is underway.  SCDHEC has been notified and water plant staff will be collecting samples in the distribution system during the day.

Residents are advised to vigorously boil water for at least 1 minute before use for the next 24 hours (9/26-9/27 12:00pm). Users will also experience limited water pressure throughout the morning and into the early afternoon. We ask that residents limit their water use during this time to avoid straining the system while repairs are being made. 

Additional notifications will be provided as needed. 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. 

Town of Batesburg-Leesville
