MetroConnects Receives SC DHEC Facility Excellence Award
Metropolitan Sewer Subdistrict (MetroConnects) has received the 2016 Facility Excellence Award from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. This prestigious award is given annually to wastewater treatment and collection agencies who demonstrate excellence in facility operations and maintenance, and the protection of the environment while exceeding customers’ expectations.
Operations and Maintenance Supervisor Brent Epps accepted the award on behalf of MetroConnects at a reception at the South Carolina Environmental Conference held in Myrtle Beach, March 12-15, 2017.
“This award is the direct result of the hard work our dedicated staff performs maintaining Metro’s system collection throughout Greenville County every day,” says Carol Elliott, MetroConnects General Manager. “We use a proactive approach to operate and maintain our sanitary sewer systems efficiently while serving as good stewards to both our environment and our taxpayers.”
MetroConnects is a special purpose district created by the State Legislature in 1969 to operate and maintain sanitary sewer collection facilities. The collection system transports wastewater from area homes and businesses to ReWa’s trunk lines and wastewater treatment plants. MetroConnects’ 168-mile service area stretches from northern Greenville County to the southern portions of the county and southwest to Piedmont in both Greenville and Anderson Counties.
