Fire Hydrant Testing

The Hanahan Fire Department is conducting fire hydrant testing throughout the city.  The schedule is below.

Scheduling

Hanahan Fire Zone #1 – From Remount Road to Mabeline Road to Henry Brown Blvd – November 1st through November 7th.

Hanahan Fire Zone #2 – Eagle Landing & Otranto neighborhoods – November 8th through November 15th.

Hanahan Fire Zone #3 – Tanner Plantation & Foster Creek Road – November 16th through November 22nd.

From November 23rd – November 30th, the Fire Department will be conducting testing on any areas that had to be bypassed or where weather prohibited testing during the normal schedule.

Why test the hydrants?

Flushing fire hydrants is one of the most important maintenance tasks of a water distribution system.

When fire hydrants are flushed, Fire Department staff is conducting the following.

  • Visible and audible leaks
  • Proper operation of valve
  • Flushing out corrosion & rust
  • Water pressure
  • Turbidity testing – tests amount of dirt in water
  • Color of the water
  • Flow of gallons per minute

If ignored, corrosion and rust can cause problems such as: severe rusty water, reduced water pressure or lower chlorine levels. Replacing water that has been standing in the system with fresh water is especially important in dead end main areas and low flow areas in the system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  Why is my water pressure is lower than normal?
A.  During testing, water pressure may be lower in some areas.

Q.  Why is my water discolored?
A.  This is temporary.  Let your water run until the water is clear again.  This is caused by the unsettling of rust in the water lines.

Q.  Is the water safe to drink?
A.  Yes.  Charleston Water System will issue a boil advisory if the water ever becomes not safe to drink.

Phone Scams

The Hanahan Police Department wants to make you aware of a current telephone scam in order to prevent residents from becoming victims of crime. The scammer will call their targeted victim and explain that he or she is a lawyer or a police officer calling on behalf of a family member who has either been arrested or is about to be arrested. The caller will tell the victim that it’s necessary to wire money so a bond can be posted to keep the family member out of jail. The caller will tell the victim to go to a local big box department store and purchase several thousand dollars in gift cards; once that is done, the caller will have the victim provide the serial numbers for the gift cards as payment.

Attorneys do not accept payment in the form of gift cards. Additionally, the police will never tell you that a relative can pay money to avoid a criminal charge. These con artists are unscrupulous people.  They primarily target the elderly and will play on emotions to get money. If you ever get one of these phone calls, find out where the family member was supposedly arrested or is being detained, and call the law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction.

Let us Know

You can also call the Hanahan Police Department’s non-emergency number, 843-747-5711.  We will send an officer to your residence to help investigate what is going on. We also ask that you call us if one of these scammers ever calls you so we can properly document the matter.

If you ever have concerns over possible scams or want to know what is going on where you live, you can contact me or other members of the police department directly.  We will provide you assistance and guidance.

Hanahan Zoning Ordinance

Section 8.8(G) Political Signs

Political signs. Any sign erected for the purpose of advertising a candidate for public office, or stating a position on a public issue on which an election or referendum is pending with respect to a particular campaign, shall be exempt, provided the following standards are met.

(1) It is unlawful to place, erect, or maintain any political sign so as to pose a visible hazard to pedestrian or vehicular traffic along streets, sidewalks, or at street corners.

Sandbag Update

***Sandbag Distribution Schedule and Important Info***

Sandbags will be issued on Friday (9/8) beginning at 11am until 5pm (or while supplies last). Individuals are encouraged to arrive early.
Location – City Hall Gymnasium off of Robinson Street.

Important Changes:
Car Loop – All cars will be staged along Robinson Street only from the gymnasium towards Dickson Ave. Robinson will have one-way traffic so you will need to enter Robinson street from Dickson Ave. No bags will be issued within the parking lot of city hall and will be by vehicle only on Robinson Street. Officers will be on hand to provide traffic support.
Bag Limit – Due to limited supplies, bag limits will be 6 (outside flood zone) and 12 (inside flood zone). Individuals must show valid ID with proof of residency. Bags will be issued for individuals in attendance only. Anyone wishing to pick up bags for others will need to make a return trip.

Information of sand availability for Saturday will be provided on Friday at 5 pm. We anticipate having sand and bags available Saturday with residents responsible for filling and loading as needed.

We issued over 4,000 sand bags today and appreciate everyone’s patience throughout the process. We apologize that not everyone was able to get sand today and we hope that we can serve you tomorrow/Saturday to fill your needs. Special thanks to the Hanahan High School Baseball Team, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, Restoration Community Church, city staff, and community volunteers for assistance today. Anyone wishing to volunteer can arrive on Friday as early as 9 am. Lunch will be provided for volunteers at 12:30.

Community Design Charrette – Downtown Revitalization

Participate in the Charrette

The charrette process provides the most meaningful and authentic way for people to get involved in planning for growth and change in their community.  Without a clear, community-supported vision for the area, the conventional approach to the public approval of project usually results in a parcel-by-parcel decision making process, where changes and exceptions to existing land use and zoning regulations occur on a piecemeal basis.

The charrette process will provide a framework for creating a shared vision for our Town Center District.  The process will result in a new conceptual master plan.

Phase 1 scheduled to be complete by December, 2018.

When?

Thursday, June 1st 2017 – 5:00pm – 8:00pm

Where?

We do ask our residents to plan accordingly for their morning and afternoon commutes while the rail crossing is closed.

Thank you for your cooperation.
