The Town of Ridgeland will be conducting its annual flushing and flow testing of the water system in August, 2017. The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control requires that the town flush its water system annually.
Flushing consists of opening hydrants and allowing them to flow freely. During this process, it is possible that your water may appear discolored. This is normal and can easily be eliminated by letting your water run for a few minutes. We especially urge you to check your water BEFORE washing laundry.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call Town Hall @ (843) 726-7501 Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
