in Rock Hill News and Events

ROCK HILL, S.C. – Officials are asking York County residents to boil their water through at least Friday after a massive water main break Wednesday at a Rock Hill water treatment plant.

A 20-inch water main break at the Rock Hill water filter plant on Cherry Road caused low water pressure and, in some cases, no water for 125,000 residents in York County, according to city officials.

Around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday, crews were able to expose the broken pipe and could begin making repairs. Those repairs were completed around 1 a.m. Thursday, and the plant was up and running by 3 a.m.
