SouthWest Water Company met every objective, retaining 100% of the utility's work force; upgrading customer service; and installing a $10 million pipeline.

  • Our company wanted to focus on our core wastewater utility businesses in South Carolina, divesting ourselves of water utilities in other states. SouthWest Water Company became a trusted partner and helped walk us through the sale process with a public utility commission we did not have experience with.  The  process was fair for both parties and the PUC approval was quick and painless.

  • I spent decades building my utility business, so I didn’t want to sell it to just anyone. In SouthWest, I found someone that was honest and fair during negotiations, and that I trust will follow through on their commitments.

  • In seeking a company to own and operate our water and wastewater treatment facilities, we wanted to ensure quality customer service, retention of employees and construction of a redundant supply pipeline to our island resort. SouthWest Water Company achieved all of those goals and more.
