Water Filtration and Treatment

The City of Clinton Water Filtration and Treatment Plant (WTP) was built in 1958 so that the City of Clinton could provide its faithful citizens with safe and quality drinking water. The WTP is capable of processing 6 million gallons of water a day, with an average rate of 2.4 million gallons a day. Our raw water comes from the Enoree River. Our secondary raw water source if needed is the 23 million gallon Duncan Creek Reservoir.

We encourage our customers to ask where their water comes from, how it is treated, how it will get to them, and to visit their local water filtration and treatment facilities. The WTP is an incredible opportunity for the community to get involved in not only the security of their water but in the public health and well-being of everyone. We have the capacity, the treatment tasks, and the dedication to continue to provide our customers with quality water that they can trust. Our product is exceptional and has been acknowledged by SCDHEC as meeting and exceeding all water quality parameters, which could only be done by our exceptional staff lead by our Division Manager Jimmy Miller.
