Important Notices – Post Hurricane Dorian
Please read the following important notices regarding recovery operations:
The Town has finished the damage assessment survey and is happy to report the island did not have any structural damage to properties and boardwalks. Also, the beach did not suffer any erosion.
Berkeley Electric crews are currently on the island working to restore power. We expect power to be restored for most of the island over the next 24 hours, though it will come on in different parts of the island at different times.
Due to the power outages, Kiawah Island Utility is asking residents to minimize their wastewater flows
For the next two weeks (wks of Sept 9 & Sept 16) trash collection will be doubled and will follow the schedule below:
Streets that have Monday collection, trash will be collected Monday and Thursday. Streets that have Tuesday collection, trash will be collected Tuesday and Friday.

We caution all returning property owners that road clearing operations will still be underway, and some streets may still have limited access at that time. Returning residents and property owners will be expected to abide by any temporary roadblocks, restrictions, or detours while crews complete their work.
