Sewer connections now available for scores of homes in Oakview, Marshland, Dillon areas; more on tap

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (February 26, 2018) – Sewer connections are now available for more than 120 homes in the Oakview, Marshland, and Dillon roads areas, as a result of a recent Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) and Town of Hilton Head Island sewer extension project. PSD customers on Oakview Road, Sam Frazier Retreat, Freddie’s Way, Rasta Drive, Sassafras Lane, Nazarene Road, Trinh Palace Way, Dianahs Drive, Chisolm Place, Ferguson Lane, Kids Way, and part of Dillon Road can now connect to sewer. Work also is continuing to provide sewer access on more Marshland Road side streets, including Allen and Pinefield roads, Jessica and Mackerel drives, William Way and Aiken Place.

The work is part of the Master Sewer Plan initiative and includes a commitment of approximately $10 million on the part of the Town of Hilton Head Island for sewer mains; approximately $3 million on the part of the PSD for new sewer lift stations and mains; and a $3-million charitable campaign on the part of Project SAFE (Sewer Access for Everyone), a charitable fund of Community Foundation of the Lowcountry that provides grants for low- and moderate-income homeowners’ connection costs.

The next phase of sewer extensions under this program will bring sewer mains to more than 30 different streets in the Squire Pope, Wild Horse, Mitchellville, Fish Haul and Baygall areas.
