The City of Camden advises its water customers located in the above area, that they no longer need to boil their water. As of March 22, 2019, results from laboratory testing indicate the water on this system is safe to drink and use for other purposes without the need for boiling.
A water line was relocated by SCDOT contractors near Chestnut Ferry Rd and W. Dekalb St, which generated a precautionary Boil Water Advisory on March 21st. Following that work the nearby water lines had to be systematically flushed and then samples collected and analyzed to determine water quality.
 
We apologize for any inconvenience regarding the return to normal conditions and appreciate the cooperation from our customers. 
 
Again the Boil Water Advisory for the above listed area has been lifted. Should you have any questions, please contact the City of Camden Public Works office at (803) 425-6045 or SCDHEC at (803) 778-1531.
