Constructed in the late 60s on scenic Lake Keowee, the Seneca water treatment plant supplies water to more than half of Oconee County. In the time since its construction, a residential area was developed next to the plant. Throughout the years, the unattractive facility developed operational and safety issues. A major concern for both city officials and nearby residents was the hazardous chlorine gas used during the disinfection process.
