SCAM ALERT



It has been brought to our attention that customers may be receiving telephone calls regarding “problems” with water and sewer service. The calls are coming from out of town telephone numbers and the caller may suggest that CMD is moving to another state. The caller may also ask for credit card information to pay a balance on an account.

DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR CREDIT/DEBIT INFORMATION TO ANYONE WHO CALLS YOU CLAIMING TO BE A CMD EMPLOYEE.

Chester Metropolitan District will NEVER call customers and request payment information over the phone. The ONLY way CMD customers should make payments over the phone is by CALLING our IVR telephone number at (833) 209-4044.

CMD staff will only call customers from local telephone numbers, and will not ask you to make payment over the phone to them. If CMD staff does call you for any reason at all, they will not be offended if you request to call our office back from the number on your bill or found here on our website and confirm their identity. We take customer security very seriously and we want our customers to feel comfortable with the person to whom they talk.

If you have received a call like this (or if you receive one in the future), please call our office at (803) 385-5123 to report it.



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.
