Notice From Seabrook Island Utility Commission (SIUC):
Charleston Water System (CWS) is experiencing a very high demand for water from the freezing weather that has caused water line breaks throughout its system.
A news article out yesterday stated that CWS is at maximum production, and if the pressure continues to drop in the system, they would have to put out a boil water notice due to low pressure. In addition, we are experiencing a slightly higher demand than average for this time of year due to customers dripping lines to prevent freezing.
Please conserve water as much as possible to assist CWS and stop dripping water as soon as temperatures exceed freezing.
As we obtain all our water from Charleston Water System, we will follow their advisories. We will pass along more information as the situation changes.
