Traffic delays expected as York County water main break work continues

A Lake Wylie water main break has York County asking residents to conserve water as repairs are made through Thursday.

Crews were on site Wednesday making repairs north of Concord Road in the S.C. 274 area.

The county and Blue Granite Water Co., formerly Carolina Water Service, told customers to expect low pressure and possible outages during emergency repairs.

York County crews at about 4:30 p.m. had identified the water main break issue affecting both York County Water & Sewer and Blue Granite Water Co. customers, according to a county statement.

York County anticipates an interruption to water service from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. May 9.

Crews have secured the area on Highway 274, and will be on the scene Thursday to make the final repairs to the water main line, according to the county,

“Motorists are encouraged to be cautious and expect delays.,” the county statement says.

Customers will receive notification if a boil water advisory is necessary through their company’s notification system, according to the county.

Blue Granite customers in the rest of Lake Wylie could be affected. Blue Granite provides the majority of water and sewer service in Lake Wylie.
