If homes in the immediate vicinity experience brown water, residents should run their faucets until the water is clear, the county said. Neighbors told the news station they have little to no water.
Repairs are expected to continue overnight and be completed by about 1 a.m., the county said Tuesday afternoon.
Also this week, drivers should be aware that county crews will close two of the four lanes on Columbia Drive, between McKenzie Drive and South Columbia Place near Belvedere Park, this Wednesday and Thursday. Crews are conducting sewer main inspections and repairs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days.
You can expect delays in both directions; traffic safety workers will be on hand to usher drivers past the repairs.
