Clogged drain pipes to be cleaned out in April

BEAUFORT, S.C. (April 8, 2022) –  The City of Beaufort, Beaufort County, and the South Carolina Department of Transportation are coordinating a major cleanout of drainage pipes in The Point and downtown neighborhoods over the next several weeks with the intention of completing the task by the end of April.

The pipes – many clogged by debris or sediment or various objects – were identified as needing to be cleaned out during a study conducted by engineering firm Davis & Floyd last fall. The study was conducted as part of a major downtown stormwater drainage project that is now in the early stages.

Project manager Neal Pugliese determined that this cleanout should be done before the beginning of Hurricane Season on June 1, and coordinated efforts with the City, county and SCDOT.

Next week, Beaufort County will be working on trouble spots at Henry C. Chamber Waterfront Park and the Downtown Marina. The following week, most of the other work should take place, Pugliese said. 

No detours or closed streets are expected, he said, but drivers and pedestrians should be aware that they may encounter some heavy equipment on downtown streets and streets in The Point.
