Wastewater Collection System Improvement - Friarsgate

Friarsgate is a neighborhood in Lexington and Richland counties in the Midlands region of South Carolina. Blue Granite Water Company owns and operates the wastewater collection system (WWCS)  in this community. The WWCS currently has approximately 3860 total customers. 

Project Need
In July 2017, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) issued a consent order to the company for violation of the South Carolina Pollution Control Act due to the discharge of untreated or partially treated water from the Friarsgate WWCS.

The consent order required the company to perform a Corrective Action Plan (CAP). The CAP identified the need to perform inspections, cleaning, and rehabilitation of the Friarsgate WWCS. This project is being undertaken to comply with the DHEC Consent order and CAP.

The project consists of CCTV, cleaning and rehabilitation of a minimum of 18,500 linear feet of gravity sewer in the Friarsgate community. There are 10 point repairs and 24 lateral repairs that are critical for rehabilitation. In addition, 5 manhole are included for rehabilitation and 10 manhole risers are included for this project. The additive alternative is critical for improvements in this system and consists of 6,899 liner feet of Cure-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP) and 9 additional manholes for rehabilitation.

Blue Granite contractor, McClam & Associates, will be performing Closed Caption Television (CCTV) and cleaning of the wastewater manholes and lines beginning in October, 2020.

Additionally, repairs and improvements will be performed. Blue Granite contractors will be working mostly in the right of way along roadway or adjoining your property in utility easements. Properties which contain any manholes and/or utility access easements, will be required to be accessed by contractors to conduct the work.

In order for us to start pre-construction activities, please remove all unapproved encroachments, personal belongings or material stored in the utility easement. This may include, but is not limited to sheds, fences or playground equipment. Unapproved structures within the easement are a safety hazard and violate the utility easement. It is critical that our workers have safe and unobstructed access to the area for construction and maintenance of the line.

Contractors have been instructed to notify property owners when they are accessing properties to perform the work. Blue Granite will make every effort to minimize disruption to the residents and properties. There may be a need to remove vegetation overgrowth and trees which are within the same areas as the sewer lines. This clearing is an important aspect in ensuring access and operation of the Collection System. Any vegetation disturbed during construction will be restored to natural condition, excluding trees and shrubbery.

Timelines for this project will be updated on this page.

Blue Granite remains committed to providing you with safe and reliable wastewater service. We believe that by delivering quality local service, we can help build vibrant communities. Maintenance and rehabilitation of the Friarsgate Wastewater Collection System is an important step in ensuring we continue to meet our commitment to you and your community.

River Hills (Lake Wylie Area) Lift Station Project

Our customers expect reliable and safe water and wastewater services, and we are planning ahead to ensure we can power your lives today and tomorrow. 

At Blue Granite Water Company we take system reliability seriously, which is essential to meeting customers' needs. Our goal is to produce and deliver reliable and cost-effective water and wastewater services for our communities.

 As part of that commitment, we plan on  installing new lift stations in the River Hills subdivision located in the Lake Wylie community. The project will consist of converting lift stations #13,  #14, #24 and #25 from dry can lift stations to "typical" submersible lift stations.

This project will eliminate current confined space entry requirements, which increases risk and costs for maintenance. Converting the lift stations to wet wells will reduce the need for maintenance contractors. Also, these lift stations are nearing the end of their useful life with reduced efficiency of the pump dry can lift stations to "typical" submersible lift stations. 

Project Need
The old wet can system is in dire need of an upgrade for the safety of our operators and to increase the reliability of the system. 

Timeline and status updates will be posted on this site.
