Drinking Water is Safe
Mount Pleasant, S.C. - - October 4, 2015- - Mount Pleasant Waterworks (MPW) has received questions regarding the safety of the drinking water. Water is safe to drink.
The earlier request was released to ask customers to limit the use of the wastewater system. Heavy rains have cause an increase in water flowing to the wastewater system.
Customers can help by not washing dishes, doing laundry, and flushing toilets excessively. Customers should not remove caps from their clean-out to allow water to drain. This increases the demand on the wastewater system.
MPW also advises customers to avoid standing water near manholes.
Crews are working around the clock to monitor the systems and respond where needed.
