Okatie, SC (October 27, 2011) — Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority’s (BJWSA) Board of Directors is revising it s Sewer Use Regulations. The Regulations, first adopted in 1989 and last updated in November 2003, govern the use of BJWSA’s sewer system.

These documents are al so being revised to reflect current regulations and practices.
