*MetroConnects now accepts credit card payments for permits. After your permit is completed, you will be notified by email when MetroConnects is ready to accept payment. After your payment is received a copy of the permit will be emailed to you. Cash in the exact amount of the permit and checks are still accepted.

Metro contracts with an outside contractor approved by the South Carolina Public Service Commission for the operations and maintenance of its pump stations. Careful evaluation of expenses associated with the use of Metro in-house personnel and equipment for pipeline construction and pump station O&M concluded that an outside contract, with Metro over-site, was the cost-effective solution.

Permitting for individual connections

To connect to the sanitary sewer line you must pay a new account fee to Renewable Water Resources (864-299-4000) and obtain a permit from Greenville County (864-467-7100). If there is a 6-inch lateral already stubbed out for connection, the County will inspect the 4-inch lateral. If you have to connect to the mainline, Metro will inspect the installation of the 6-inch lateral and the County will inspect the installation of the 4-inch lateral. We will provide information to give to your plumber with the details for construction. To connect, please call 864-277-4442.
