Information on a Boil Water Notice

Occasionally, Greer CPW has to issue a boil water advisory or notice. We issues these after an event that may have allowed harmful bacteria or other organisms in the water system. These events may be pressure loss over a large area or a water main break. 

What do I do during a boil water advisory or notice?

During an boil water event, affected customers should boil their water vigorously for at least one minute before using it for drinking, cooking, making ice, or giving to pets. This will help keep you from getting sick. 

How will I know if I am affected?

Greer CPW will notify you using one of several methods. For small advisories, we place door hangers at your home. For all our advisories, we use our reverse calling system to notify customers. To make sure your information is up-to-date, call use at 864.848.5500. That way, we'll be able to notify you.

You should check our website, Facebook, and Twitter accounts for information and updates. You'll also receive a call to notify you that the water is safe to drink.
