Alligator was chosen from all the water systems in South Carolina for this prestigious award.
Alligator’s system was established in 1987 and was funded by Rural Development, a division of U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. Since 1991, Alligator has received over $70,000,000.00 in grants and loans from state and federal agencies to provide water and sewer services to its service area. In addition to serving customers in the Alligator service area, Chesterfield County Rural Water Company, Inc formed a partnership with Alligator to provide an unlimited quality water supply to 85% of Chesterfield County, including the towns of Jefferson, Pageland , Chesterfield, Ruby and Mt.Croghan. The partnership developed with CCRW’S manager Charlie Gray and his board has proved beneficial to the entire county.
