News
Pelzer recently received a $334,100 water and waste disposal grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development division.

Of the projects that will receive stimulus funds in the state, 395 have not been started, 59 are completed, 65 are more than 50 percent complete and 327 are less than 50 percent complete. Only 14 percent of contracts have been received, and only 22 percent of grants have been received. None of the $30 million in loans have been received.

This is a $16M project that is envisioned to be the "World of Water" that will be located on a 20-acre parcel on Lake Hartwell beside the Anderson Joint Water System's Plant (off Pearman Dairy Road).

Please weigh in on this! This could be a super asset to the Upstate, all of South Carolina and the water industry as a whole. If nothing else, fill out the survey and pass this along to interested parties. Thanks!

USDA Rural Development State Director, Vernita F. Dore today announced the selection of the Starr-Iva Water and Sewer District to receive a $9,571,300 Water and Waste Disposal grant and loan that is being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

Legislation
Are you involved in legislative issues? Do you have a personal relationship with your Senators and House Members? If not, this should be a priority for 2010. We in the water and wastewater industry are an untapped source of influence in the political process.
