3 sewer districts sue Greenville County again, seeking to overturn consolidation decision

Jan 13, 2021

Three sewer special purpose districts in Greenville County have sued the county over its vote to consolidate their services into another larger sewer provider.

In a lawsuit filed in the Greenville County Court of Common Pleas on Monday, the three — Gantt Fire, Sewer and Police District, Parker Sewer and Fire Sub-District, and Taylors Fire and Sewer District — sued the county and members of the councils in 2020 and 2021, saying state law doesn’t give the county authority to dissolve sewer districts without the districts’ consent or a referendum of district voters.

The lawsuit seeks to undo the council’s action, finalized Dec. 15, 2020, to consolidate six special purpose districts and fold their sewer services into Metropolitan Sewer Authority, known as MetroConnects, which would be the lone remaining sewer special purpose district in the county.
