Crews resolve sewage-overflow issues in Goose Creek

Posted: Updated:
GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) -

Berkeley County Water & Sanitation said Thursday all areas in Goose Creek affected by sewage overflow caused by heavy rainfall last week have been cleaned and deodorized.

Johanna Cooper, spokesperson for Berkeley County Water & Sanitation, said the pumping stations affected were located: on Highway 176, near Devon Forest; on Henry Brown Boulevard, between Red Bank Road and Liberty Hall Road; on Madeline Drive, near Boulder Bluff; on Liberty Hall Road, near Liberty Hall Plantation, and on Price Street and Weeks Avenue, near Forest Lawn.

An overflow also occurred at a few manhole on Red Bank Road near Goose Creek High School, where a breached sewer line prompted some eastbound lanes to cave in.

Each of the affected areas have been properly disinfected and deodorized, according to Cooper.

Residents in those areas are asked to call (843) 572‐4400 if they have any additional questions or concerns.
