Water Improvement Project 

November 16, 2018 Update

November 16, 2018 Update-McCall Brothers has begun drilling the pilot hole for Well No. 7. 

November 14, 2018 Update-McCall Brothers have mobilized on site and plan to begin drilling Well No. 7 on November 15, 2018.  They will be drilling throughout the weekend.  They will be shutting down operations for Thanksgiving.  

October 22, 2018-Utility locates have been completed so construction on the lots at 2502 Lee Street can begin.  Contracts have been let for the well drilling at well site 7 and 8 to McCall Brothers.  This contractor is familiar with Edisto Beach since they installed Well 6 on Dock Site Road.   They are preparing construction submittals for approval. 

Contracts have been let for the construction entrance.  We are using the same contractor (JR Wilson) that is constructing the Myrtle Street Drainage project. They have also been approached for a price to install the cross pipe on Myrtle Street at Sunset to prevent conflicts with that project.  

Wharton Smith will be installing the sign at the site and installing safety fence.  Murdaugh tree service has been hired to remove the trees on the site.  The Town will mitigate removal of those trees removed according to our ordinance.  Lee Frank will be conducting the surveys on the site for layout of the construction project.  The Bay Company has been hired to install the silt fence around both sites.  

The Permit to Construct the raw water transmission line has been issued by DHEC.

Myrtle Street Drainage Project Update 

Novmeber 14, 2018 Update-  The SCDOT contractor has installed the outfall pipe from Lybrand to Marianne Street.  They are in the process of installing the pipe across Lybrand Street.  Portions of Lybrand are closed for construction.  The fiber optic lines have been relocated and AT&T is working on testing the new fiber optic lines prior to removing the old lines.  Once the old fiber optic lines are removed, the Town's contractor will relocate the water lines.  We have asked SCDOT to provide an update of the project at the December 13, 2018 council meeting. 

SCDOT has started this project.  The silt fence is installed and the utility companies are relocating their utilities to allow for construction.  (October 23, 2018) AT&T has fiber optic lines in the construction zone and they are in the process of relocating them.  This process involves installing new lines, switching service to the new lines and removal of the old lines.  The Town also has to relocate utilities but everyone is on hold waiting for AT&T to complete their work.
