DHEC directs BJWSA to remove signs on Beaufort River
Okatie, South Carolina – September 2, 2020 – The SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) has directed Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority (BJWSA) to remove swimming advisory signs on the Beaufort River. The precautionary signs were erected August 27 after wastewater was released from a Parris Island pump station into the Beaufort River. The overflow occurred due to power failure.
BJWSA has a well-trained and experienced field operations crew to monitor our wastewater collection system. These crews maintain the sewer lines to ensure the safe daily delivery of an average of 9 million gallons of wastewater to eight area wastewater treatment facilities for treatment and disposal.
If you see or suspect any type of spill from the sewer collection system, please contact BJWSA at 987-9200.
