 NOTICE TO RESIDENTS

Water services normalized: Water main serving Sullivan's Island & Isle of Palms back in service  Water supply back to normal; Island lifts outdoor watering restrictions (8/19/14 press release)

Charleston Water System has completed initial repairs to the 20-inch water main that crosses the Harbor to serve Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms.  As a result, the outdoor watering restriction issued last Thursday to both islands has been cancelled. The outdoor watering ban was a precautionary measure to ensure the Isle of Palms could temporarily supply water for both islands while Charleston Water System repaired the pipe.  Both island will begin turning on dedicated irrigation meters as soon as possible.

The leak was stopped on Sunday when divers installed a large clamp around the pipe.  The line was put back into service late Monday after tests confirmed water quality meets all regulatory requirements.
Charleston Water System plans to install another specially-made clamp to provide additional reinforcement and protection for the underwater pipe.  This work will not affect water service to the islands.  
The cause of the leak is unknown.
