An Important Reminder from the Seabrook Island Utility Commission:
Please do not flush wipes or paper towels down the toilet even if they are labeled “flushable”.
Studies show that wipes do not fall apart or disintegrate enough to safely pass through the sewer system and may pose real damage to your home’s plumbing system, blockages within the island’s utility system, and damage to the pump stations.
If you experience a service emergency such as a backup in your drain or toilet, contact your plumber or a service such as Roto-Rooter immediately. Only when the blockage appears beyond your private plumbing system where your line connects to ours, contact SIUC. The utility service emergency number is 843.768.0102.
The SIUC Team is fully staffed and working to provide our customers the water and sewer service they need. We do not expect any service disruptions. The water we supply our customers comes to us already treated by the Charleston Water System. According to the CDC, Covid-19 virus has not been detected in drinking water.
As a reminder, paying your bill through Auto Draft or our online payment system will help you pay on time and it helps us in processing your payments more efficiently. If you haven’t already done so, please consider signing up for Auto Draft today through our website at www.siuc.org. An application can be found in the Forms & Reports section.
Thanks and stay safe and healthy!
