I spent decades building my utility business, so I didn’t want to sell it to just anyone. In SouthWest, I found someone that was honest and fair during negotiations, and that I trust will follow through on their commitments.
In seeking a company to own and operate our water and wastewater treatment facilities, we wanted to ensure quality customer service, retention of employees and construction of a redundant supply pipeline to our island resort. SouthWest Water Company achieved all of those goals and more.
Our company wanted to focus on our core wastewater utility businesses in South Carolina, divesting ourselves of water utilities in other states. SouthWest Water Company became a trusted partner and helped walk us through the sale process with a public utility commission we did not have experience with. The process was fair for both parties and the PUC approval was quick and painless.
