Water & Wastewater on Military Bases

Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority (BJWSA) has been responsible for ownership, operations and maintenance of the water and wastewater systems at the Marine Corps Air Station, Laurel Bay Housing, the Naval Hospital Beaufort and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island since 2008.

As part of a merger, utilities on the military installations have undergone significant maintenance and upgrades. In addition, due to more restrictive Beaufort River discharge requirements, the military wastewater plants at the Air Station and Parris Island have been eliminated, with wastewater flows diverted to our state-of-the-art Port Royal Island Water Reclamation Facility.

BJWSA thanks the service men and women for their sacrifice and service to our country.
