    Where Does My Water Come From?

    DPU obtains its raw water from the North Fork Edisto River. The high quality and abundant quantity provides for future community and economic development. Our water treatment plant processes an average of 8 million gallons per day (MGD) and has the capability to treat 30 MGD. A source water assessment was performed by SCDHEC and results are available by visiting the website at ww.scdhec.net or by calling the DPU Water Division at (803) 268-4404
