DHEC fines BJWSA for wastewater violation

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Department of Health and Environmental Control has issued a $2,000 fine against the Beaufort Jasper Water Sewer Authority for violating wastewater permit levels.

The company said it happened last May when a chemical feed system had two mechanical breakdowns.

The discharged water contained too much fecal coliform when it was dumped into the Broad River.

BJWSA says they replaced both systems within 24 hours and it did not affect the drinking water.
