Dorchester County Water and Sewer Department advises the residents of Stratton Capers 2 Subdivision that they no longer need to boil their water prior to drinking or cooking.

Following an intense flushing of the water distribution system, bacteriological samples were collected by the Department and analyzed by our laboratory. The results of this sampling indicate that the water system is now safe to use for drinking and cooking purposes.

If you should have any questions concerning this repeal of the boil water advisory, please contact the Dorchester County Water & Sewer Department at (843) 832-0075 or (843) 563-0075.
