Water Matters


Water Matters

We launched a newly designed program in 2022 that still allows attendees to gain understanding and insight into our operations at Spartanburg Water, but that condenses the academy into two, half-day events. The new format includes:

  • a tour of Lake Bowen Park and R.B. Simms Drinking Water Treatment Facility.
  • a tour of our SCDHEC-licensed lab, our Construction & Distribution operations and our largest wastewater treatment facility, the A. Manning Lynch Wastewater Treatment Facility.
