Nassau Street, Huger Street, Stuart Street, and America Street Water Main Replacement
(June 2017): Charleston Water is replacing the waterlines on Huger Street, Nassau Street, Stuart Street, and America Street in your community with modern materials.
During this project, we will be replacing any lead service lines that are encountered (the line that goes from the water main to your meter). Lead service lines are common in many older water systems, and Charleston Water takes steps to during the water treatment process to proactively protect you from lead contamination. During the project, we are offering free lead tests to those affected by the lead service line replacement.
We will deliver a test to your home, pick it up, and test it at our certified lab. Afterwards, we will notify you of the results.
For more information about lead and the steps CWS takes to protect you, our lead page.
We anticipate the project will be completed in the spring of 2018.
Working in older communities often causes construction delays due to traffic
patterns, unknown underground utilities, and other variables.
We appreciate the community’s patience as we work to improve infrastructure in your neighborhood.
