Joe Foldesi, a field operator with the Beaufort-Jasper Water Sewer Authority, flushes a hydrant Feb. 6, 2014, at the corner of Great Bend Drive and Savannah Highway in Beaufort as part of an effort to remove the bad taste and odor some Beaufort County customers are detecting in their tap water. On Feb. 2, the BJWSA stopped using the reservoir at its treatment plant in Okatie, where a chemical caused by algae was affecting the water’s taste and odor, according to the utility.
