AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - The city of Aiken Engineering and Utilities Department has restored service after a water main break near 325 Northwood Drive.

According to officials, approximately 150 homes were impacted by the water main break. The following streets are affected: Northwood Drive, Penmar Street, Woodbine Drive and Vivion Drive.

Traffic in the area of the repair remained lightly impacted late Thursday as crews used excavating equipment to refill trenches.

Customers should expect some air in water lines until the system returns to normal flow.

Homes that were without water will be under a boil water advisory until further notice.

The city of Aiken will use social media and the Aiken Explorer app to provide updates on the situation.
