[ARCHIVED] BJWSA responds to wastewater release on Williams Avenue

BJWSA responds to wastewater release on Williams Avenue

(Okatie, South Carolina) – September 22, 2021 – Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority (BJWSA) reports that an estimated 63,000 gallons of wastewater was released from a pump station on Williams Avenue from approximately 11 AM to noon September 21. The overflow, caused by a mechanical failure at the pump station, occurred at Williams Avenue and ended in a wooded area west of Deerfield Road in Hardeeville.

BJWSA crews immediately responded and took the appropriate cleanup, repair and treatment action to stop the overflow. Signs were posted in the area to inform the public.

BJWSA has notified the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), and is working in conjunction with SCDHEC to address any effects caused by the overflow.

BJWSA has a well-trained and experienced field operations crew to monitor our wastewater collection system. These crews maintain the sewer lines to ensure the safe daily delivery of an average of 10 million gallons of wastewater to eight wastewater treatment facilities for treatment and disposal.

If you see or suspect any type of spill from the sewer collection system, please contact BJWSA at 843-987-9200.
