COLUMBIA, S.C. — Columbia Water customers in two neighborhoods under boil water advisories are being told that the water there is now clean and they no longer need to boil water before drinking or cooking.

Customers located along Trenholm Road, from Glenwood Rd to East Buchanan Dr, in Richland County, had been under a boil water advisory since a sinkhole opened up Monday, Oct. 14, on Trenholm, near the intersection of Beltline Blvd.
