The Savannah River is a reliable water source for Beaufort and Jasper Counties.

It is impossible to ignore how important clean water is in our daily lives. Your drinking water meets all of the water quality standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC).

We check the quality of your drinking water carefully and consistently. Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority (BJWSA) takes water samples from the Savannah River, throughout our water system and at water taps in homes in our service area. Both a certified, independent lab and the BJWSA certified lab perform extensive tests on these water samples. BJWSA regularly reports test results to DHEC. DHEC also performs sanitary surveys to check water quality on a regular basis.
