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 27, 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 Wateree Blvd, which generated a precautionary Boil Water Advisory on March 26th. Following that work the nearby water lines were 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 while the roads and utilities are being improved. 
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.
