Gaffney BPW News

Last week the Board of Commissioners for the BPW took the proactive step of opting out of two national class-action settlements against the manufacturers of a chemical known as PFAS. BPW feels that our best option is to pursue our own litigation against those who created a nationwide problem affecting every person in the US.

BPW has been awarded a $750,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) for major improvements to the Macedonia water distribution system. The improvements include upgrading an existing pump station, constructing a new pump station, and installing over 18,000 linear feet of 12-inch water main. These infrastructure upgrades will make water service available to an additional 25,000 acres in the Macedonia area.
