Water Extension Projects
Spartanburg Water provides water distribution system design services free of charge based on a first come, first served basis. An uncomplicated subdivision or commercial layout can be completed within 45 to 60 days of receipt of the electronic plat from the developer or his representative. Should this period not be acceptable, the developer may retain the services of a South Carolina licensed professional engineer to design the project. Spartanburg Water provides review services and assists with the applicable SCDHEC Delegated Review Program permitting process.
The resources listed below are provided to assist developers, engineers, and contractors with requirements related to water main extensions in Spartanburg Water's service area. We require all projects to adhere to the standards and requirements outlined in Spartanburg Water's Technical Specifications for Water Distribution System Improvements, available in PDF format. Our Developers' Manual is a guide which outlines Spartanburg Water and Spartanburg Sanitary Sewer District's extension policies and requirements related to design, permitting, administration, construction, inspection, release of taps, and service connections.
