Wastewater in Lamar

In an effort to serve you better, we have created a place where you can report wastewater odors to the Lamar Public Works Department.

When you detect an odor due to the Zion wastewater treatment facility in Lamar, we want to hear from you.

Click this link to be redirected to a form where you may submit information on the odor.

If a complaint needs immediate attention outside of our normal Town Hall hours, please call 843-639-1503.


Water Payments are due on the 20th of the month.  All late payments received after the due date will be assessed a 10% late fee.  A $50 reconnection fee must be paid before water service is restored to a disconnected residence for  non-payment.  Customers that tamper with water service equipment after it has been disconnected will be assessed a $200 tampering fee.   ***If your water service is disconnected, so will your trash collection service.

Beginning October 1, 2022, the Town’s water and sewer rates will be raised five percent.

For utilities payments, you may mail to Town Hall, use the drop-box at Town Hall, phone in or pay online!
