Water Quality and Hydrant Flushing

Water Quality and Hydrant Flushing

We purchase all of our water from three quality providers. Our top priority is making sure that this water remains exceptional in quality as it travels through our system to your tap. This requires extensive monitoring and system flushing.

As a member of AWWA’s Distribution Optimization Program, we have volunteered to increase the level of monitoring that is required by our state regulator, SCDHEC. We are one of the few system in South Carolina that performs this level of work to make sure that you receive quality water at all times. You may see our operators flushing the system from hydrants or blow-offs from time to time. We don’t like to throw water out on the ground, but sometimes it is necessary to maintain good disinfection residual in your drinking water. This assures us that your drinking water remains bacteria-free at all times. As previously stated, nothing is more important than this to Powdersville Water. We want you to know that every time that you open the tap, you can be assured that there are professionals that “have your back” and are making sure that you are served with a high quality product.
