Habersham boil-water advisory lifted

A boil-water advisory for Habersham residents and businesses has been lifted.

The Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority and S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control said Friday afternoon that samples indicate the community's water is free of bacteria and safe for human consumption.

Officials issued a boil-water advisory Thursday because of a water main break. They suggest people in the affected area run their bathtub and sink faucets for 10 minutes or until the water is clear.
