ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. - The Joint Water and Sewer Commission will not shut off water and sewer service on St. Simons Island Sunday in preparation for the threat of Hurricane Irma. Despite an earlier decision to turn off the water.

Filling a bathtub with water can help with flushing the toilet or washing clothes if you happen to experience an outage. Residents should not drink the water stored in the tub.
