The Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996 requires that each community water system provide an annual Drinking Water Quality Report to all its customers. The information contained herein is for the Town of Sullivan’s Island (System #1010003) for the reporting period of January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020. The Town of Sullivan’s Island purchases its water from the Charleston Water System (CWS) which is a surface water facility, treating water from the Edisto River and Bushy Park Reservoir. Below is a link of Charleston Water System’s (CWS) 2020 Drinking Water Quality Report for your review. The Water Quality Report from CWS is representative of the water delivered to Sullivan’s Island residents.
We continue today to add food grade Polyphosphate to the water supply to minimize discolored (Red) water. In addition, we have replaced/rehabbed approximately 57,500 linear feet of water main and 23,500 feet of service lines. Sullivan’s Island does not have any lead service lines in our system. We still have approximately 22,500 feet of water mains that need to be replaced. Each year our goal is to replace approximately 1,000 feet. With all the sewer projects in most recent years we have not replaced any water mains the past two years. It is anticipated that we will restart this replacement program back up in 2022.
