The water in the Hickory Hills subdivision is safe to drink again after a main on Bees Ferry Road broke Tuesday, according to the Charleston Water Service.

A boil-water advisory was canceled Wednesday afternoon.

A construction crew widening Bees Ferry Road broke a water main Tuesday afternoon, according to Charleston Water System spokeswoman Jenny Craft. Utility crews had to shut off water to about 150 houses in Hickory Hills to fix it, she said.

Water was restored before 10 p.m. Tuesday, but residents were advised to boil water before drinking it until tests showed it was safe.
