Where does water go after you flush?
Out of sight and out of mind, wastewater in the Upstate travels miles through pipes and pump stations to reach the treatment plant at Renewable Water Resources. The wastewater is then transformed into reusable water.
Unlike roads and power lines that can be seen, wastewater infrastructure remains unseen. But, it’s in no way unimportant to our community’s economic development.
“Wastewater is kind of the one thing that people really don’t give much of a thought until you flush your toilet and it suddenly, magically disappears,” ReWa CEO Graham Rich says. “I say it’s a miracle every time you flush because it travels a long, long distance.”
