Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) will recognize National Infrastructure Week and celebrate the completion of its two, new regional sewer lift stations with a customer-appreciation cookout from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 18 in the parking lot and community room at its facility at 21 Oak Park Drive off Mathews Drive on Hilton Head Island.
National Infrastructure Week from May 14-21 aims to educate stakeholders and policymakers on the critical importance of infrastructure to America’s economic competitiveness, security, job creation, and in the daily lives of every American.
This year, Hilton Head PSD will recognize Infrastructure Week by celebrating the new sewer lift stations in the Oakview and Marshland areas. The stations were built as part of the Master Sewer Plan initiative, a partnership among the PSD, Town of Hilton Head Island, and the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, to provide sewer access and connection assistance on scores of streets in the PSD service area.
Guests at the cookout will be offered tours of the PSD’s Recycled Water Plant, which annually recycles more than 1 billion gallons of treated wastewater into beneficial recycled water that irrigates the island’s golf courses and nourishes wetlands in Hilton Head Plantation and Palmetto Hall.
About Hilton Head PSD: Hilton Head PSD is the public water, sewer, wastewater treatment, and recycled water utility serving more than 18,000 customers in the north- and mid-island areas.
