Palmetto Utilities withdraws permit application
Placeholder Image
A Richland County wastewater treatment utility company has withdrawn a permit application to discharge treated sewage into a Kershaw County creek. Palmetto Utilities had been seeking Kershaw County Council’s endorsement for the permit from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DEHC) to discharge up to 6 million gallons of wastewater a day into Spears Creek near its treatment facility off Highway Church Road just north of I-20 south of Elgin. The utility did not need council’s approval to receive the permit, but Palmetto Utilities President Stan Jones told council at its April 22 meeting he would like to have the cooperation of everyone affected.
