Public Invited to Weigh in on Spartanburg Water War

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

The public will get one last chance to weigh in on the ongoing water war in the city of Spartanburg.

The last of four public forums will be held at Woodland Heights Recreation Center on Thursday at 7 p.m. Spartanburg city leaders will be on hand to share information about the issue and answer questions.

Representatives from Spartanburg Water and the Public Works Commission have not been attending these city-sponsored meetings.

The CPW wants to pay the city less because there's been a decreased water flow over the last couple of years. Their latest offer is to pay the city $1.2 million, decreasing that amount each year until it reaches $800,000. That would be the baseline payment for a number of years after that, with a future annexation also available.

City leaders rejected that proposal. They want the CPW to pay $1.2 million for 5 years with the option of re-negotiating terms after that. However, the CPW says that will force them to increase rates by as much as $40.
