Redbank Road has second water, sewer problem

Posted: Updated:

Residents and those who utilize Redbank Road in Goose Creek are once again having to deal with serious road problems.

The area in front of Goose Creek high school once again was pushed up due to significant water from rain over the weekend. Berkeley County Water and Sanitation released a statement on the issue, "BCWS has brought all resources to bear on containing the damage, safely diverting the traffic flow around the affected area, and repairing the roadway. BCWS is pursuing solutions to the problem by looking at hydrology modeling to better balance system pressures and examining epoxy coating technology that can seal manhole interiors. Every reasonable effort is being made to find a quick and effective solution."

About a month ago a similar water/sewer problem happened at the same location on Redbank Road. The pressure from the water underneath literally pushed the road up forcing portions of the asphalt to crumble, including areas near five manholes.

Crews are expected to repair the road by the end of the day Monday. Officials say they hope to have normal traffic in the area by late Monday evening.

"Two hours later he returned and had his gun over [the front counter] and proceeded to cock it and ask for our money box. I handed him the money box and he took up the tray and dashed out the door with my wife in hot pursuit. For her protection, I went after her," Mirabile explained. It became a dangerous dash with an armed man. "Wh...
