Since 1925, Renewable Water Resources (ReWa) has been committed to providing high quality wastewater treatment services to the Upstate of South Carolina.

ReWa's goal is to promote a cleaner environment, and to protect the public health and water quality of the Upstate waterways, while developing the necessary sewer infrastructure.

ReWa has eight water resource recovery facilities (WRRF), 343 miles of collection lines, and services Greenville County and portions of Anderson, Laurens, Pickens, and Spartanburg Counties. In addition to keeping our Upstate waterways free of contaminants, we are continually making system improvements to meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations. This continual improvement means we are responsible for the health, rehabilitation, and replacement of aged sections of our current system to proactively help protect the aquatic environments of three Upstate waterways: the Reedy, Saluda, and Enoree River Basins.

We seek to promote a cleaner environment through our treatment process, which means that in addition to treating wastewater and replenishing our Upstate rivers and streams, we are continuously seeking new ways to recycle our by-products. Furthermore, the clean water can be used for irrigation of recreational areas such as golf courses, and ultimately conserves our drinking water. ReWa uses clean water to irrigate the lawn at its administration building as well as multiple uses at our WRRF.
