Our Mission

The South Anderson Water District was founded in 1974 by a group of Anderson County citizens to provide a clean water supply to the rural residents of the community. This group of citizens approached the Farmers Home Administration for guidance on how to create a water provider to the people of the area. Upon FHA advice, an engineering firm was selected to design the infrastructure and an attorney to prepare the easements and other necessary documents for our initial project that included 10.2 miles of water main and one storage tank to serve 179 residents and farms.

As the years have passed and multiple expansion projects have been completed, the district has expanded from the initial 10.2 miles, one tank, and 179 households. The district currently has over 225 miles of water main, 6 storage tanks, and serves over 3000 customers. The district has achieved, through frequent expansion, the ability to provide water service to all residents located in its service area. Our board of commissioners and staff strive to maintain the trusted and reliable service that our customers have depended on throughout the years and continue to improve and update our system to supply the needs of the people of Anderson County.
