We are continually reviewing our policies and procedures with respect to concerns about COVID-19. On March 18th, in response to the economic effects of the coronavirus outbreak, we adjusted our disconnect policy and suspended disconnections, as Governor McMaster requested of all utility providers. However, state officials emphasized all customers still have an obligation to pay their bill for utility services eventually. We cannot provide water for free because if we did, as a non-profit, other customers would have to cover those costs through higher rates. In order to keep your bill from growing to an unmanageable amount, please continue to pay on time. Our suspension of disconnections has been extended until April 30, 2020. Residential customers will not incur a late fee until that date.

Effective 10/09/17

Easy ways to Save Water

  • Install a shower flow controller. It reduces the flow of water without diminishing the shower spray.
  • Fix leaky faucets quickly. One drip per second wastes about 6,000 gallons of water a year.
  • Water your lawn early in the morning or in the evening when there is less evaporation.
  • Keep a bottle of water in the refrigerator instead of running tap water until it is cold enough to drink.

The Board's water division serves approximately 9,500 residential, commercial, and industrial customers. A raw water pump station, on the Broad River pumps to our primary source, Lake Whelchel, or directly into the Victor Gaffney and Cherokee Water Treatment Plants. This assures an adequate water supply well into the next century. The Board has a total treatment capacity of 18 million gallons of water per day. In addition to over 200 miles of water lines, the Board has four above ground storage tanks, including the Peachoid, and 2 million gallons of ground level storage.
