January 2021 update
Beaufort Jasper Water & Sewer Authority is replacing galvanized water lines in the community to improve water quality.
Over time, these lines corrode, which can cause the water to look yellow or brown, can cause taste and odor issues, and can also cause issues with water pressure.
With many miles of galvanized lines, especially in older areas, BJWSA has taken a phased approach to the work. The current phase started the week of Jan. 18 in the Pigeon Point neighborhood.
This construction effort will include installation of new PVC water mains, fire hydrants, water services, and meter boxes along Laudonniere Street, La Chere Street, Calhoun Street, Harrington Street, North Street, Whitfield Street, Capers Street, Center Drive West and Emmons Street.
The replacement of water service lines to customers is provided only to the meter. BJWSA will not be replacing any water lines on private property between the meter and the house.
The construction is expected to last approximately one year and customers may experience temporary water quality issues during this work. While the contractor completing this work will attempt to minimize these occurrences, you may experience periods of discolored water which you can remedy by running the tap for a couple of minutes.
