Beaufort Jasper Water and Sewer Authority (BJWSA) and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) announced today that the latest water sample analyses indicate the water in the City of Beaufort is free from bacteria and is safe for human consumption. The boil advisory for the City of Beaufort is now lifted.

The precautionary advisory  to  boil  water  used  for  drinking  or  cooking  was  issued January 8 because a contractor hit a line, causing water pressure to drop.

Additionally, BJWSA suggests that you flush your system, running bathtub and sink faucets for 10 minutes or until the water is clear.

BJWSA apologizes for any inconvenience this incident may have caused.

December 7, 2018 — 9 AM: Customers who might have recently experienced discolored water are reminded to flush their COLD WATER TAPS for FIVE MINUTES.
