New Water Advisory

Effective April 25, 2017 Elloree Water System is under a Boil Water Advisory due to a break in a 6” main line. Bring your water to a rapid boil for one full minute and let cool. Do this before drinking or using the water for cooking. This is for all of EWS customers until further notice.
