Municipal wastewater treatment in Greer began around 1906 with a 30,000 gallon septic tank collecting and treating wastewater for the area.

Greer’s Maple Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) was built in the 1940s.  Currently, the facility is permitted to treat 5 million gallons of wastewater per day and plans to expand to handle continued growth. The Maple Creek WWTP serves more than 14,850 accounts in the Greer area.

The wastewater service area has 270 miles of gravity collection lines, 31 pump stations, 29 miles of associated force mains, 9 permitted industries and approximately 120 food service establishments.

Greer CPW also maintains a cooperative intergovernmental agreement with Renewable Water Resources (ReWa) to treat some of the wastewater generated in our service area. ReWa is a regional wastewater treatment provider, and these cooperative agreements help accommodate additional growth by transporting wastewater to additional treatment facilities.
