Annexation and Sewer Service
Chapter 51.092 of the Mount Pleasant Code of Ordinances addresses annexation and sewer service provision by Mount Pleasant Waterworks.
(A) Contiguous properties. Annexation into the town is required as a condition prior to the Mount Pleasant Town Waterworks providing sanitary sewer service to any lot, parcel, or piece of land located outside the corporate limits of the town and contiguous to the town limits.
(B) Denied contiguous properties. If a formal annexation petition on any lot, piece, or parcel of land, located outside the corporate limits of the town and also contiguous to the town, is denied by the town, or if Town Council makes such a determination on its own motion without a petition, sanitary sewer services may be provided by the Mount Pleasant Waterworks to such property, notwithstanding division (A) of this section.
(C) Noncontiguous properties. Sanitary sewer service may be provided by the Mount Pleasant Waterworks to noncontiguous properties located outside of the corporate limits of the town and within the town's official planning area; provided that the owners of the same execute a binding legal document acceptable to the town, requiring the owners and their heirs, successors and assigns to annex the subject properties into the town within 90 days of the same becoming contiguous to the town. The referenced legal document shall be approved by the Town Attorney and recorded by the owners in the Register Mesne Conveyance Office for Charleston County
Contiguous properties are those that are located in the County at the town boundaries and touch other properties already located in the town, or are only separated from properties located in the Town by an “intervening connector” such as a road, street, waterway, etc. as described by Section 5-3-305 of the SC Code of Laws.
