City Begins Inventory of Service Lines

Attention City of Camden Water Customers:

Due to updated legislation, the City of Camden is responsible for identifying the service line going to each water meter and from the water meter to each house. This will be achieved by excavating a small area on both the road side and house side of the meter box. If you already know what type of service line is supplying your residence, we ask that you please share that information with us through the Connect Camden SC app, or by calling the Water Plant at 803-432-0009. This will reduce the amount of excavation required to comply with this legislation.

Under current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, all water community water systems (CWSs), regardless of size, must develop and maintain an inventory of service lines that the public can access (40 CFR 141.84(a)). The inventory must describe both water system-owned and customer-owned segments of the service line. A utility must submit the initial inventory to its primacy agency by Oct. 16, 2024.
