The New Chester Sewer District!

The Chester Sewer District is now…

 Chester County Wastewater Recovery!

In an ongoing effort to provide superior service to the residents and businesses of Chester County, we at Chester County Wastewater Recovery have embarked on a mission to put forth our best possible image. In November 2016, the Chester Sewer District’s Board of Commissioners approved a plan to rebrand Chester County’s Wastewater System by upgrading our image and putting our focus back on our customers and the services we provide.

About The New CWR:

The Chester Sewer District (CSD) is a special purpose district created by Legislative Act No. 480 as amended by Act No. 1186 (and subsequent Amendments thereto) of the Acts of the State of South Carolina for 1964.  The CSD was created for the purpose of transporting, treating and disposing of wastewater originating within the CSD Service Area. In September 2016, the CSD Board of Commissioners passed a resolution to allow the CSD to operate as Chester County Wastewater Recovery (CWR).  CWR is a more accurate name detailing the actual function of the organization.  Therefore, the CSD is “doing business as” (DBA) CWR.

Wastewater treatment is an important service provided by the CWR to residents, businesses and industries in the Chester and Richburg areas.  Without this service, industrial operations in the Chester County area would be greatly hindered.  That is why CWR is a strong supporter and partner in economic development efforts in the county.

The CWR’s mission is to protect public health by providing efficient and reliable wastewater services to conserve resources, promote growth and development, and return clean water to the environment.

Notice of Fire Hydrant Testing

 

CMD Logo

Chester Metropolitan District will be performing fire hydrant testing January 25, 2017 through January 31, 2017.

All testing is done by District personnel. The goal of this testing is to assure a reliable water distribution system, aid in planning future projects for our Capital Improvements Program, and provide data on how the system will perform in the event of a high flow situation, such as a fire. The fire hydrant testing includes capturing flow readings, flushing of the fire hydrant and line, and documenting any inefficiency found. During these tests, sediment may be stirred up which may result in discoloration or suspended particles in the water. Citizens who experience any unusual water clarity problems after the hydrants are flushed are encouraged to turn on a cold-water faucet outside of the house and let it run for 5 to 10 minutes. This will normally clear up the agitated water from the service line to the home. Sediment can accumulate in the lines which can cause discoloration in laundry. It is recommended to check that both the hot and cold laundry water is clear before washing. A slight decline in water quality is common immediately after fire hydrant testing has occurred. If water quality does not improve or further problems occur, contact Chester Metropolitan District by calling 803-385-5123.
