Closing a Commercial Account with a Fire Service

Commercial accounts that have a separate fire service line must provide written authorization from the property owner, insurer, and fire marshal before Charleston Water System will close the account. View the authorization form.

This policy is intended to protect the property in the event of a fire, and to protect Charleston Water System from liability. If written authorization is not provided, we will continue to bill the account until a new party requests water service at the location. If you have questions about closing a commercial account with a fire service, please call 843- 727-6800.
