Public Notice - Myrtle Beach Surface Water Treatment Plant Contingency Plan

September 21, 2018

MYRTLE BEACH WATER PLANT CONTINGENCY PLAN:  GSWSA and SCDHEC do not anticipate any water quality issues for the Myrtle Beach WTP as a result of the flood waters or potential release from the Grainger site. We will continue to monitor the water quality daily to ensure all parameters meet or exceed federal and state standards. If we suspect an issue and source water conditions are negatively impacted, the Myrtle Beach WTP will be temporarily shut down and water service will be provided to the Myrtle Beach system from the GSWSA Bull Creek Water system through several connections.

During this time, all Horry County residents that are customers of GSWSA, City of Myrtle Beach, City of North Myrtle Beach, City of Conway, Town of Loris, and Little River Water & Sewer Co. will be required to reduce water consumption by half to sustain all systems.  Please limit your water use to essential needs only and stop all outdoor water use.

A separate notification will be sent if we determine the need to shut down the Myrtle Beach WTP for customers to begin reducing consumption by half.

 A separate notification will be sent once all systems are restored and normal conditions are achieved.

Please share this information with others in our community.  Customer with any questions or concerns can contact GSWSA at (843) 443-8200.
