Sewer Capital Rehabilitation Rate Plan

Posted on Jun 28, 2016 in News

Laurens County Water & Sewer Commission (LCWSC) adopted a 4-year Sewer Capital Rehabilitation Rate Plan. In order to ensure that a sustainable sewer system is available for future generations, this plan will eliminate the need to use limited reserve funds for capital rehabilitation projects as required to maintain compliance with state and federal regulations. A well maintained, highly functioning wastewater collection and treatment system is required to adequately serve our customers and protect the environment. Ongoing maintenance must be performed to ensure that the LCWSC continually meets these standards. As a non-profit public utility, LCWSC depends solely on your payments to cover the operation and maintenance costs of its wastewater systems. The goals of the rate-making process are to ensure that rates are fair and equitable and generate enough funds to reliably operate and maintain the wastewater systems.
