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.
