The Water and Sewer departments are responsible for all activities related to providing our citizens with clean, safe and reliable water and the treatment of sewer effluent. In addition to working with contractors to locate the water lines and force mains, your employees check all wells and pumping stations daily, make taps and repairs and read meters. Someone is on duty at all times.
We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. We are presently utilizing nine wells which draw from several different aquifers including the Tuscaloosa, Mendendorf, Floridan, and Black Creek. We're pleased to report that our drinking water is safe and meets federal and state requirements.
The City of Walterboro Water System routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. Each year the City produces and provides to all citizens an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day.
The City has committed to provide sufficient infrastructure to encourage economic growth. An important part of this commitment is to maintain excess capacity for waste water treatment. Currently the City's facilities can treat 2.6 million gallons every day. The City averages less than half this volume.
