Beaufort County Sheriff Speaks To The Community About Irma 6:30pm
Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority to turn off water to the barrier islands in advance of Hurricane Irma to the following barrier islands at 4:00 PM Sunday, September 10: Fripp Island, Hunting Island and Harbour Island at 4:00 PM Sunday. Restoration of those services will occur once the weather permits. Fripp Island manages their own sewer and well system and plan to turn those off at noon on Sunday. After the service is restored there will be a boil water advisory in place until customers are notified by their local water supplier that it is safe to consume. While the advisory is in effect, water must be boiled vigorously for at least one minute before drinking or cooking.
