811 - CALL BEFORE YOU DIG!

If you need to dig in your yard (planting shrubbery, installing fencing, etc.), please be aware that we require you to call 811 to request line markings.  Once the order is received from 811, our technicians will go out to mark any lines that may be in the area you are planning to dig.  If you do not call, and you damage any lines, you will be held responsible for any repair bills.

PLEASE DO NOT USE DOXO WEBSITES FOR PAYMENT: It has recently come to our attention that there is a website that can copy other websites and allow customers to pay their bills through Doxo.  While Doxo is a legitimate company, it is not affiliated with Saluda County Water and Sewer Authority.  If you make payment through Doxo, it could take 6 - 8 weeks before Saluda County Water and Sewer Authority receives a paper check from them.  Please check your url (website address at the top of the screen) and make sure it reads: www.scwsa.com/bill-payment.  Any other url may be an unsupported payment website. 

MAJOR WATERLINE PROJECT (PHASE 2)

On September 27, 2018, SCWSA received funding from USDA-RD for $15.2 Million to extend waterlines throughout the eastern part of Saluda County.  SCWSA held public meetings in October to encourage property owners to take advantage of this fantastic and rare opportunity.  In order to move to construction SCWSA is required to obtain 300 customers sign-ups.  SCWSA offered a reduced sign-up rate, typically $1540, down to $590.  While we have had lots of interest, sign-ups are underwhelming.  Currently we have about 100 sign-ups.  SCWSA has extended the reduced rate period to March 15, 2019.  After March 15th the rate will increase to $640 until September 1, 2019. In neighboring communities, water taps range between $2700 to $5000.  As we discussed at our public meeting in October, it is up to those that came to the meetings to get the word out to their neighbors.  SCWSA will be holding another public meeting on March 4, 2019, at the Circle Fire Department on the Traffic Circle at 7PM.  Please attend!  SCWSA's construction schedule is now delayed due to lack of participation.  SCWSA is faced with either continuing to delay the project or returning federal funding and scaling back the project.  It is SCWSA's intention to provide everyone an opportunity to receive water.

Have you hugged a Water Operator Today?

The modern plumbing system is considered one of the greatest innovations of the 19th century. In fact, plumbing dates back to the Greeks and Romans, but luckily has significantly evolved since the olden days.

It's easy to take for granted how lucky we are to have access to fresh, clean water at the turn of a tap. It’s especially amazing considering that available fresh water only accounts for approximately 2% of all water resources.
