Spartanburg Water announced a new program that provides an opportunity to gain authorization for any existing improvements — including both permanent and semi-permanent structures around Lake Bowen — that currently exist on Spartanburg Water property below the 827’ Contour Line.
The Pause Program started October 1, 2018, and continues through December 1, 2019. During this 14-month period, adjacent property owners may request to “Press Pause” and establish a baseline of permits for the improvements below the 827’ Spartanburg Water property line.
Spartanburg Water staff will work with each property owner to review and establish a baseline of permits, licenses and/or agreements. All existing improvements, semi-permanent or permanent structures, as of October 1, 2018, in good condition, will receive an authorization from Spartanburg Water.
This one-time program is open to every adjacent property owner living around Lake Bowen with property abutting the 827’ MSL contour and applies to currently constructed and existing permanent or semi-permanent structures located below the 827’ MSL contour, on Spartanburg Water property.

As citizens of the world we must protect our planet from the physical, economic and public health effects of climate change while also providing pathways to economic prosperity.
Why it matters:
The preservation of the physical, chemical and biological integrity of the earth’s ecosystem is essential for maximum protection of public health and the environment. The interrelationships of air, water and land resources should be recognized in designing environmental safeguards. The federal government should have the major role in setting standards for environmental protection and pollution control.
What we're doing:
Since the 1960s, we have been at the forefront of efforts to protect air, land and water resources. Our approach to environmental protection and pollution control is one of problem solving. The League’s environmental goals aim to prevent ecological degradation, and to reduce and control pollutants before they go down the sewer, up the chimney or into the landfill. We support vigorous enforcement mechanisms, including sanctions for states and localities that do not comply with federal standards as well as substantial fines for noncompliance.
