A 12-inch water main break occurred yesterday evening on Howard Avenue, affecting hundreds of customers in The Market Common area neighborhoods. Myrtle Beach's Public Works staff worked late into the night to repair the break and restore water by 3:00 a.m. today. Because the water system was opened during the break and repair, the City of Myrtle Beach is sending out the precautionary boil water advisory notice you see below. Once staff receives notification the bacteriological samples are cleared, we will distribute our “Rescission of Precautionary Boil Water Advisory Notice.” This will state the water has passed the bacteriological testing and is safe to drink.
If you have any questions, call Myrtle Beach's Water Division at 843-918-2004.
