[ARCHIVED] Jane Way Maintenance and Repair

Jane Way Drainage Maintenance & Repair

Dear Residents:

The City of Beaufort is excited to announce that the long-awaited clearing of the Jane Way drainage area will begin during the week of June 3, 2019. The Jane Way Canal drainage area is near Beaufort Middle School in the Mossy Oaks neighborhood and this area has been the site of numerous flooding events over the past three years. The city is undertaking a multi-million-dollar drainage improvement project to alleviate flooding in the area. As part of that project, the Department of Health and Environmental Control has issued a permit allowing maintenance and repair of portions of the Jane Way drainage area. The maintenance and repair work will allow for an increase in the rainwater storage capacity of the drainage system and reduce the potential for flooding. 

The permit includes the following areas (see below):

  1. Drainage ditch to the NW of the Beaufort Middle School (2501 Mossy Oaks Road)
  2. To the rear of residences found on Elizabeth Lane (SC State Road S—7-409)
  3. To the rear of residences and the Beaufort Middle School along South Drive (SC S-7-250).
  4. Portions of Center Drive East (SC S-7-251) from South Drive South to Mossy Oaks Road.

The maintenance and repair area will be cleared of all obstructions, vegetative growth and garbage; this will facilitate improved drainage. Every effort will be made to preserve trees that do not impede drainage. The contractor, Oliver’s Bush-Hogging, LLC will access the area via Beaufort Middle School and impact to affected homes is expected to be minimal. This work will not interfere with any planned school activities. Maintenance is expected to last approximately two weeks.

Please contact Neil Desai at or at 843-525-7054 if you have any questions.
