Georgetown Co. Water & Sewer planning to shut off water to several areas ahead of Hurricane Florence

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WBTW) - Georgetown County Water and Sewer District is planning to shut off water to several barrier island areas ahead of Hurricane Florence. 

According to a post on Georgetown County's Facebook page, the Georgetown County Water and Sewer district is planning to shut off water to barrier islands at 8 a.m. on Thursday for the following areas:

- Town of Pawleys Island

- Prince George

- Oceanfront DeBordieu

- Oceanfront Huntington Beach State park

- Litchfield beaches

No areas in Murrells Inlet or areas in Pawleys Island or Litchfield west of Highway 17 will be affected, according to the post. The decision to turn off water is "to preserve district-wide water service in the event of line breaks due to storm surge."

"Water service will be restored to barrier islands as soon as District personnel can safely get out to do so, but those areas will be under a 48-hour boil water advisory while testing is being conducted," states the post.
