McCormick, South Carolina, near the Georgia border, is the seat of McCormick County. The town’s Commission of Public Works operates a number of infrastructure systems, including a town-owned wastewater treatment facility and a distribution system for electrical energy that it purchases in bulk from South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G).
The wastewater treatment facility was expanded to handle flow from neighboring developments as well as its own water supply. Because the facility uses a UV decontamination system, electrical power reliability is critical to the safety of the water supply - without power, there is no decontamination process.
