SAWS PROJECT TO PROVIDE LIQUID ASSETS AND FUTURE ECONOMIC IMPACT
ANDERSON REGIONAL JOINT WATER SYSTEM AND ANDERSON COUNTY COLLABORATE TO PROVIDE UNIQUE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT WILL ATTRACT INDUSTRY, CREATE JOBS AND PREPARE FOR FUTURE POPULATION GROWTH
ANDERSON COUNTY, SC — On Thursday, February 14, Anderson Regional Joint Water System and Anderson County Government will celebrate the completion of the South Anderson Water System (SAWS) Project. The Dedication Ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. at the SAWS Intake Facility, located on Sloans Ferry Road, off Dobbins Bridge Road just past Andersonville Baptist Church.
The SAWS intake is an in-ground pump system, which extends 50-60 ft into Lake Hartwell. Raw water flows into the intake pump through the pipeline and travels from the lake to the corner of Masters Boulevard and US 29, approximately 41,000 linear ft.
In early 2009, Anderson County Council and Anderson Regional Joint Water Board envisioned a system which would meet the needs of prospective industry and future population growth in the area. By December 2009, the SAWS project had transformed from a vision toward becoming a reality.
SAWS Project Timeline:
• Design kicked off following Spring, 2010
• Construction of pipeline begins in Spring, 2011
• Economic Development Administration awards million EDA (federal) grant for Intake Project in July, 2011
• Construction of Intake begins Spring, 2012
• Construction completed in January, 2013
In early 2011, County Council voted to accept an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with the Anderson Regional Joint Water System (ARJWS), authorizing the County to allocate 4,370 PCB mitigation and remediation funds to increase the size of the water line in order to prepare for potential industrial recruitment and job creation, as well as future population growth in the southern part of Anderson County. Additional funding sources included a million EDA Grant.
“This new facility not only will provide water for future residents, it gives Anderson County another competitive advantage in industrial recruitment by having the ability to deliver either treated water or raw water. Very few other communities in our state or region have this capability. First Quality uses the savings of raw water use to maintain a market advantage. We are hoping that other companies can use this advantage and locate in Anderson County.”
The Anderson Joint Regional Water System agreed to construct, own and operate the SAWS pipeline for the purposes of supplying water to the South Anderson service area. Initially raw water will be delivered with the future potential to construct water treatment facilities that will deliver potable water.
“It has been exciting to witness the collaboration and communication between a regional water provider, county government and industry,” said AJRWS Board Chairman Dyke Spencer. “The completion of this project in a record amount of time is truly a testimony to what can happen when a small group of people communicate and work toward a common goal.”
Anderson County Economic Development Director Burriss Nelson stated, “this new raw water line provides greater probability for jobs creation and opens the door to industry potential that has never been available in Anderson County; this is the opportunity of a life time.”
