Schedule of Master Sewer Plan projects set

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (February 5, 2016) – Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) is pleased to announce the anticipated schedule of Master Sewer Plan sewer projects. These projects are necessary to complete the PSD’s Master Sewer Plan to provide sewer access to all properties in the north- and mid-island parts of Hilton Head Island.

The Town of Hilton Head Island is funding $3.5 million for sewer mains on the streets listed below. The PSD will be funding $1 million for new sewer pump stations needed to facilitate the street projects.

Even after the mains are installed, homeowners connecting to the system will have sewer connection costs. Community Foundation of the Lowcountry plans to launch a capital campaign to raise money for sewer connection grants for low-to-moderate income homeowners. The PSD offers all customers long-term, low-interest financing of all sewer project costs.

The projects are broken down into a five-year plan. The PSD has initiated the surveying and engineering necessary to complete the projects. The first year’s schedule of projects is anticipated to be put out for construction bids this spring.

Some of the streets will receive gravity sewer service, while others will be served using low-pressure sewer service. Both types of systems are operated and maintained by the PSD. Placement in a particular year on the list does not prevent a street from receiving sewer service sooner, based on market or other factors.

Many of the roads being served require easements from property owners in order for the sewer mains to be installed.

The table below shows the streets for which the Town is funding sewer main installations by plan year:
