UPDATE as of 12PM on 10/9/20:
BELTON, S.C. (WSPA) – City officials in Belton said engineers are working to solve a water supply issue that started early Thursday morning.
According to Alan Sims, city administrator for Belton, they received a call from the Belton-Honea Path Water Authority at around 6 a.m. Thursday saying that pressure was dropping, which typically means there is a leak somewhere.
Sims said in this case they know they don’t have a water leak at this time, but said the problem is that they do not have any water coming into the city from the water authority.
According to Sims, there is limited water supply at this time and said the tanks are not giving them enough water to fill them to capacity.
He said currently there are 2,600 water customers impacted, and all are experiencing either low water pressure or no water at all.
BELTON, S.C. (WSPA) – The City of Belton Combined Utilities issued a boil water advisory Thursday morning.
Customers will need to boil their water for at least one full minute before drinking or cooking with it. This includes ice.
The advisory was issued as a precaution due to a loss of water pressure.
The advisory will remain in place until further notice.
