Metropolitan Sewer Subdistrict, dba MetroConnects, was created as a special purpose district, by the General Assembly by Act No. 687 on July 14, 1969 and amended in August 1972. MetroConnects is a subdistrict within Greenville County Sewer Authority, now known as Renewable Water Resources (ReWa), and is empowered to acquire, construct, operate, maintain, improve and extend facilities for the collection of sewage within the subdistrict and transmit the same to the trunk lines or sewage treatment and disposal facilities of ReWa for treatment and disposal.
MetroConnects cooperates with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control (SCDHEC), ReWa, all municipalities, and other special-purpose districts in the provision of sewer facilities throughout
Greenville and Anderson Counties.
Metro is governed by a 5-member Board of Commissioners. Board members are individually recommended by Greenville County Council and appointed by South Carolina’s Governor for staggered four-year terms. General manager Carol L. Elliott works directly with the commissioners to review capital campaigns that focus on the construction and maintenance of sewer lines.
The Board of Commissioners meets at 2 p.m. on the third Monday of each month. If you would like to be included on the agenda, please contact the board at least one month in advance at 864-277-4442.
