Spartanburg Water maintains ownership of our drinking water supply reservoirs, including shoreline buffer property up to the 720’ Mean Sea Contour Line above the water's edge for Lake Blalock. We take this responsibility seriously and follow a strict set of policies and procedures to ensure the long-term health and quality of the reservoirs that supply our community with its drinking water.
Much of the landscape around Lake Blalock is rural. Although growth around the lake is expected to be minimal over the next 25 years, lakefront property development is expected to significantly increase. To prepare for lakefront growth, SWS has developed plans for Lake Blalock to provide bank stability, maintain wildlife habitat, and filter out run-off pollution. Please read the Resolution to Project Water Quality, adopted by the Commission of Public Works of the City of Spartanburg.
We have adopted specific policies and procedures that govern all activities on Lake Blalock or on SWS property surrounding the reservoir.
