City Water Customers Notice

Notice to City Water Customers

The City of Georgetown will be replacing the piping system for the ammonia feed at the Water Treatment Plant.

Until further notice, the city will stop the addition of ammonia at the Water Treatment Plant and disinfect with free chlorine. As a result you may detect a small change in the taste and smell of your water. We will resume adding ammonia as soon as possible to the chlorine disinfectant at the treatment plant.

If you have any questions about these changes, please call the Water Treatment Plant at 843-545-4509.

We appreciate your understanding and support of this system repair and maintenance process.

Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving Day, Stay Safe!

Safety Seat Inspection Station

Friday, November 17 between 3 and 5 PM, we will be hosting a child safety seat inspection station at our headquarters station, 1405 Prince street. Please stop by and give our technicians that are in the class some additional hands on training to get certified. If you cannot make that date, please stop by anytime as we have certified technicians on shift that can assist you in keeping your children or loved ones safe when traveling in your vehicle. We do not have any child safety seats to give out but will happily assist you in placing your own seat in the vehicle.
