Electrical Services for Spas and Pools

Looking to add value to your home? Installing a spa or pool is a wonderful idea to add to your list. Plus, your backyard barbecues will be much more fun. The process of installing a pool or spa isn't something you can handle on your own, though. You will need a team of experienced electricians in Mount Pleasant, SC to ensure your system is set up correctly. That way, you can enjoy your pool or spa for years to come, and it'll be in great working order when it's time to sell.

Why Do I Need an Electrical Contractor for Pool or Spa Installation?

Installing a pool or spa is a very involved job that includes more than digging out space for a pool or spa. These units are very complex and have a whole host of electrical needs, from heating units and filters to color-changing lights that wow your guests. Having a professional install these parts is vital. Otherwise, you'll be swimming in a dirty, near-freezing pool or spa.

Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors guarantees your pool or spa will be in proper working order for years and years.

EV Charging Station Installation

Finding a reliable EV charging station when you're out and about is still a gamble in this day and age. While EV charger availability is improving, most EV owners prefer to have a charging station installed at home. But doing so is easier said than done and often requires the help of a professional electrician.

Why Do I Need an Electrical Contractor for EV Charging Station Installation?

If you're like most homeowners, you don't have the proper permit to install your own EV charging station. For that reason alone, you need to rely on a pro who has the right tools and electrical know-how to handle the job. Plus, EV chargers need much more voltage than standard electrical systems you may find in your home. That makes installing these devices much more dangerous than average appliances. Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors to install your charging station ensures it's completed quickly, correctly, and safely.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – A federal investigation is underway in Mount Pleasant after residents reported a possibly-illegal removal of an eagle’s nest from a cell tower.

Mike Brown lives right across the street from the tower off Rifle Range Road. He’s watched for years as ospreys and eagles made themselves at home on top of the structure.

“Well, seven years ago I watched the osprey build the nest, had their babies and then they leave in the fall and then shortly after the bald eagles show up,” Brown explained.

This yearly cycle was disrupted on Thursday when Brown said he watched crews working on the tower remove an eagle’s nest. He doesn’t believe the birds were in it at the time, but he said he saw them just two days before.

“I mean its seriously heartbreaking, you know. They were kind of my buddies. I was very excited to see them come and go every year,” Brown told News 2.

Brown captured photos and posted them to social media. Word of the removal spread quickly.

“When I got here, there was nothing left of the nest and I do know the eagles were present and unhappy that the nest was gone,” said Cacky Rivers, a local wildlife photographer.

Rivers monitors several nests through her work. She said it’s the middle of nesting season, so the eagles may very well have laid eggs.

“I don’t know what was in there. I don’t know what they found. I have no idea. But I know that they’re done. They no longer have a nest, and they are basically parents that have nothing now and so, they may have to start over if they can. I don’t know if they will with timing or if they have to wait another year,” she said.

Rivers got in touch with both federal and state agencies who reported to the scene. According to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s website, the removal of eagle’s nests is illegal, unless a permit is issued.

The agency confirmed to News 2 it is investigating the incident but said they can’t comment on active investigations.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources released the following statement to News 2.

“The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources responded to reports of the removal of a large raptor nest in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service has initiated an investigation regarding the removal, and inquiries concerning this incident should be directed to Office of Communications, United States Fish and Wildlife Service Southeast Regional Office at fw4_comms@fws.gov.”

Mount Pleasant Town Council considers addition of citizen-run green commission

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Protecting the environment can be challenging, but a Mount Pleasant Town Council member says it continues to be a priority."I know some of us are more vocal about wanting to protect what we look like and how much green space, how much we are protecting wildlife and environment, and thinking about where this water is going to go," said Brenda Corley, a Mount Pleasant Town Council member.On Tuesday,...

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Protecting the environment can be challenging, but a Mount Pleasant Town Council member says it continues to be a priority.

"I know some of us are more vocal about wanting to protect what we look like and how much green space, how much we are protecting wildlife and environment, and thinking about where this water is going to go," said Brenda Corley, a Mount Pleasant Town Council member.

On Tuesday, Jan. 10, Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie and town council met to talk about many agenda items. One of those included the idea of a citizen-run green commission.

"I'm super excited that the mayor and his flood resilience came up with this idea and brought it to the council, but we want to make sure that we are ensuring that we continue to be value added, because we have so many great things already here in Mount Pleasant for the environment," said John Iacofano, another Mount Pleasant Town Council member.

The commission would include nine citizens chosen by the committee. Councilman Iacofano says he is 100 percent behind protecting the environment, but he wants to make sure adding the commission makes sense for the town.

"We have the flood resilience committee, we have the planning committee; these things kind of overlap, so we want to ensure that we are creating the best citizen input possible and the culture to cultivate that," continued Iacofano.

Others look at it as a space to give the people of Mount Pleasant a voice.

"Us tree-huggers aren't that organized, and I think those residents need a voice and they don't have one group right now who is advocating for us, for wildlife, and for nature, and for conserving," said Corley.

Preservation is timely topic after the controversial removal of a raptor nest from a cell tower near Rifle Range Road on Thursday.

Overall, the commission's objective would be simple: to keep Mount Pleasant beautiful.

Next steps include going back to committee and discussing it again next month. The council will then vote on it, and the public will be asked to submit their resumes to be considered for the commission.

Mt. Pleasant firefighter scales USS Yorktown to propose to girlfriend

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — The season of joy and celebration is taking on new meaning for one Mount Pleasant firefighter.

Nick Putskey proposed to his girlfriend, Katey Young, a teacher at Westview Primary Elementary, Thursday afternoon surrounded by family and friends atop the USS Yorktown.

“We’ve been on the same page since day one,” Young said when asked about meeting Putskey. “It’s the true fairytale.”

The proposal was somewhat of a fairytale, as well.

“My battalion chief was actually the masterplan of the whole idea,” Putskey said. “He said, ‘what do you have as an idea as far as an engagement?’ He was just like, ‘well, hear me out, see if you like this’ and I was like ‘yeah, that sounds awesome.’”

The plan was to scale the USS Yorktown, a nod to Putskey’s time spent in the Navy, as well as both of Young’s grandfathers.

The perfect front? Claim it as fire station training.

“We had ‘high-rise training,’ if you will,” Putskey said. “So that’s where climbing the ladder came into play.”

Young’s family was also in on the plan.

“It was actually under the guise as Santa for all of the grandkids,” Young explained. “We were going to take a picture with Santa. He was supposed to be flying in on the Yorktown.”

There was no Saint Nick in sight, but Nick Putskey had the ultimate present in hand.

“I was clueless until he got down on one knee and I was like, ‘what are you doing?’” Young said. “I did say yes, it just took a second because I was like, ‘I thought Santa was supposed to be here, and he was like ‘no!’”

Putskey and Young admit emotions were high, and for Putskey, there were plenty of nerves.

“I’m afraid of heights, so climbing a ladder was not fun,” Putskey said. “My foot actually slipped though the ladder because I was just getting so nervous.”

But the mission was a success.

“It couldn’t have gone any better,” Young said. “It was a really special moment, for sure.”

Putskey said it was a moment made possible by the bond of brotherhood.

“They were exactly how I wanted them to be,” Putskey said. “They were just like my extended family and I’m really grateful for that. It is truly the brotherhood of the fire service.”

Leading plan for I-526 and Wando port traffic in Mount Pleasant adjusted after uproar

South Carolina’s initial plan to improve traffic on Interstate 526 and the Long Point Road interchange in Mount Pleasant was met with an outpouring of public opposition, and that’s prompting the state to make revisions.

The road work is critical for operations at South Carolina’s busiest port, the Wando Welch Terminal at the end of Long Point Road, and for traffic relief at the busy interchange.

The plan calls for new elevated ramps to and from the interstate dedicated to port trucks, and a version presented to the public in 2022 showed that building those ramps could require the demolition of two or three homes in the Tidal Walk subdivision. The subdivision sits along the north side of I-526.

Nearly 540 people submitted comments about those plans in the fall and 59 percent opposed the proposed elevated port ramps, while just half supported the S.C. Department of Transportation’s favored plan known as Alternative 2.

S.C. Department of Transportation Project Manager Joy Riley said the responses showed that people in residential communities north of the interstate were against the proposed elevated ramps and favored keeping port truck traffic on Long Point Road. Unsurprisingly, those living in communities between the highway interchange and the port favored the new ramps, which would remove truck traffic from Long Point Road.

The plans were revised following the survey results, and those changes were outlined at an invitation-only “stakeholders meeting” at the end of November, which included homeowner associations and business owners, plus elected officials and SC Ports representatives.

The revised plans still call for elevated truck ramps, but no longer impact Seacoast Parkway or homes in the Tidal Walk subdivision. Riley said DOT also feels “pretty confident” that an analysis will justify noise walls along the north side of I-526, addressing another concern among residents.

“Noise has always been the number one concern in our neighborhood, along with not wanting any neighbors to lose their houses,” said Grassy Creek resident Lee Lazarus, who has spoken at public meetings about the plans. “Supposedly we’re going to something like a 20-foot wall.”

Under state law, DOT would need Mount Pleasant’s consent for the project. Riley said the town’s approval would likely be sought after another round of public comments following a meeting planned in March, which could prompt more refinements to the plan.

Mayor Will Haynie said the recent revisions addressed the town’s main concerns.

“People were going to lose their homes, and we are very happy that we’re not going to see that,” he said. “Not that there’s no room for improvement — such as turns onto Belle Hall Parkway — but the parts affecting neighborhoods in a major way have been addressed.”

The Belle Hall Parkway issue involves the planned elimination of left turns from Long Point Road to the parkway, where a Waffle House restaurant is located.

That may sound like a small detail, but the parkway is the main entrance to the large subdivision. The elimination of left turns would mean that anyone coming from the interstate would need to drive past the subdivision’s main entrance, then turn on a different road and double back.

Riley said DOT is still looking at alternatives that would allow for left turns there, but so far has not resolved the issue.

The work at I-526 and Long Point Road would be a large road project on its own, but it’s just a small part of the roughly $7 billion Lowcountry Corridor plan to widen the interstate from West Ashley to Mount Pleasant and redesign the interchange of interstates 526 and 26 in North Charleston.

The I-526/Long Point Road project is being addressed in the early years of the larger project partly because traffic has overwhelmed the interchange, and port-related truck traffic regularly backs up on the interstate while trying to exit at Long Point Road.

“It’s a failing interchange because it just cannot process the number of people who are trying to turn left to get to Mount Pleasant, and you have trucks continuously clogging up the interchange as well,” Riley said.

And traffic is expected to increase significantly by 2050.

The next public hearing on the project is tentatively scheduled for March 14, though a time and location have not been announced. The recommended plan, potential impacts on properties, and an analysis of where noise barriers are warranted are among the information that should be presented then.

Until then, “we will be working diligently to assemble the environmental document and move through some critical Federal Highway reviews of our traffic analysis and designs,” Riley said. “All this must be approved before we hold the public hearing in March.”

The leading plan, Alternative 2, would require an estimated 28.5 acres of right of way involving 98 properties, some of which are home to businesses, but no houses. Construction work on the road plan is anticipated in the spring or summer of 2024 and to finish in 2027 or 2028.

Meanwhile, information about the project can be found online at 526lcclongpoint.com, the project team can be emailed at info@526LowcountryCorridor.com, or contacted by regular mail to the attention of Joy Riley, PO Box 191, 955 Park St., Columbia SC 29202-0191.
