Town of Lexington makes offer to purchase Carolina Water Service I-20 plant

September 21, 2017

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – The Town of Lexington has made an offer to buy the troubled Carolina Water Service’s I-20 treatment plant. Based on a recent appraisal, the Town of Lexington made an offer in the amount of $1.584 million to purchase the facility, and the customer base served by that operation. Carolina Water has not yet responded.


The offer is the town’s latest effort to eliminate the discharge from Carolina Water’s facility into the lower Saluda River. If Carolina Water accepts the offer, Lexington will tie the facility into the area's regional sewer system. That water goes to a state-of-the-art municipal plant located on the Congaree River in Cayce. 


Over the years, the company has had a number of problems with this facility. They are currently under orders from regulators to transfer the ownership of the plant quickly so that their discharge into the Saluda will stop.


In response to offers made by the Town in the past, CWS has made it clear that they don't think they've ever received a reasonable offer. You can see CWS' response by clicking here.
