Greenville Water’s L.B. Stovall Water Treatment Plant celebrates 20 years of providing pristine, quality drinking water to our community! Placed into service in July of 2000, the 75 Million Gallon per Day (MGD) facility utilizes a state-of-the-art Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) process for water treatment.
The DAF process clarifies water by removing solids in the raw water by introducing air in the form of microbubbles that attach to the solids causing them to lift to the surface of the water where they are removed by a skimming device.
Providing Pristine Drinking Water to Our Community through Conservation
The water treated at our Stovall plant comes from Table Rock and North Saluda reservoirs, and in 2013 Greenville Water secured from the State of S.C. an initial 40-year Surface Water Withdrawal Permit. This permit enables Greenville Water to withdraw up to 130 MGD combined from the Table Rock Reservoir (69 MGD) and the North Saluda Reservoir (61 MGD). These two sources reside in protected, forested watersheds owned entirely by Greenville Water. The area is comprised of approximately 30,000 acres that are preserved by a conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy. The conservation easement guarantees that residential, agricultural, or industrial waste never enter the reservoirs. Public access is restricted, and the area is maintained and patrolled 24/7 by Greenville Water staff.
Utilizing a quality treatment process and protecting our forested watersheds are just a couple ways Greenville Water is able to deliver safe, award-winning water to our customers.
