Laurens County Water & Sewer Commission (LCWSC) Water Distribution System Flushing

Posted on Nov 17, 2013 in News

To maintain high quality and reliable service to our customers, LCWSC will be flushing in areas designated by the map below. As a result of the line flushing process, customers may experience temporary discoloration of their water. This discoloration consists primarily of harmless mineral deposits or air and does not affect the safety of the water. If you experience discoloration in your water, please clear the pipes by running an outside spigot or cold water faucet for 5-10 minutes. Please check for discoloration before washing laundry. Do not attempt to dry stained laundry; simply rewash clothes immediately using detergent.

Some customers may also experience changes in pressure during this time. Please allow a few hours before contacting LCWSC. However, if you have NO water please call LCWSC immediately. If water pressure or water volume continues to be low in one area of your home, check faucet screens or aerators for trapped particles.

If your water continues to be discolored or if your pressure does not return to normal, call the LCWSC customer service at 864-682-3250. Select option 2 with service address, date and time of the issue.
