Lake issues boil advisory

The Town of Lake Waccamaw is reporting a leaking water main on Canal Cove Road. Due to the leak, bacteria may have been introduced into the water system causing the town to issue a Boil Water Advisory for certain properties.
This advisory is in effect until further notice and is issued for all properties from 800 Canal Cove Road to the end of Waccamaw Shores Road. This advisory also includes Wooded Acres Subdivision.
Consumers are advised to boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water. Vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
