The local Myrtle Beach water company is one of the first utilities that you will want to contact prior to moving into your new home. This list will help you decide who to call.
You need it for washing, cooking, drinking and flushing the toilet and you need it NOW! You really can’t do without it for even a day, so it needs to be turned on and flowing before you back the moving truck up to the door.
“IT” is water, good old H2O; something we don’t think about until we don’t have it, but it’s something you need to think about when making your move-in check list. On the Grand Strand there are several water companies serving different cities and county locations, so you need to know who and where your local water company is so you can get hooked up.
There are seven companies serving the Grand Strand from Murrells Inlet to Little River. For most of them it’s pretty easy to tell who serves your neighborhood depending on where you live. The only confusion might be with Grand Strand Water and Sewer (843) 443-8200 since they cover a pretty broad area. Basically, they cover most of the county including the unincorporated areas of Murrells Inlet (in Horry County), Garden City and the City of Surfside Beach, so if you live in the county, call them.
