Hilton Head PSD applies to drill new well

The South Island Public Service District plans to drill a new well on Hilton Head Island.

The PSD submitted an application to the S.C. Department of Health & Environmental Control to build a 620-feet-deep well near Cordillo Parkway. The well would draw a maximum of 526 million gallons per year from the Middle Florida Aquifer.

DHEC will accept public comments on the application until May 11. Send them to SCDHEC/Bureau of Water, 2600 Bull Street, Columbia, SC 29201, attention: Alex Butler.

Citizens or groups wanting to be notified of DHEC's permit decision must submit a comment on the application or make a request to receive such notice. They should also provide a name and mailing address.
