BJWSA is a public, nonprofit organization created by the South Carolina legislature. We are governed by a board of directors consisting of eleven members, who have been recommended by Beaufort County and Jasper County legislative delegations and appointed by the governor of South Carolina.

The General Manager oversees the organization and reports directly to the board. He is assisted by our Deputy General Manager of Finance and Administration and our Deputy General Manager of Operations and Technical Services.
