HISTORY

The Upstate Roundtable was developed in 1994 in response to concerns regarding the Upstate’s infrastructure keeping up with economic growth. As a solution, the Upstate Roundtable brought together key professional and community leaders from Anderson, Greenville, Laurens, Pickens and Spartanburg Counties. The volunteer group studied critical elements in the sewer systems and developed a 20-year plan to ensure that adequate sewer infrastructure would be in place to provide service for the growth and development in the area served by the Reedy, Saluda and Enoree River Basins.

The original work of the Upstate Roundtable was carried out by four sub-committees: Technical, Policy and Community Issues, Finance and Communications. The current Upstate Roundtable includes the addition of a Regulatory & Legislative Committee, as well as the creation of an Executive Committee to address issues that impact more than one committee area.
