At BPW, we are more than just a Power, Water and Wastewater Utility. We are part of the community. Our Board of Commissioners is elected by the customers we serve. It's been that way since 1907. As a customer-owned utility, our decisions are made locally; that's what makes us responsive to you. Most of our employees are customers as well, and that drives them to provide nothing but the best in their responsibilities. Local Control, Local Service, Local Workers - That's what makes BPW Your Hometown Utility!

Gaffney Board of Public Works just finished a routine algae inspection with DHEC at Lake Whelchel.  The Board's staff has been monitoring and treating the algae at the lake throughout the spring; however, this week the algae spread significantly compared to last week.  DHEC has recommended we close the lake until the bloom dies down.  In response we are ramping up the algaecide treatments to try and mitigate the bloom and get the lake reopened as soon as possible.  We plan to close Lake Whelchel on Thursday, July 22nd and reevaluate the algae on Monday July 26th.
