PRWD renews commitment to GCCP

May 8, 2013

Pioneer Rural Water District is going full-steam forward with its plan to make the Golden Corner Commerce Park the home for its first treatment plant, and that pleased the only member of a group called “Stop Pioneer Now” who attended yesterday’s district board. Terry Pruitt, Pioneer general manager, laid out a timeline for Oconee County Council to complete the sale of property inside Golden Corner on which the district is to construct the plant. According to Pruitt, the deal should be complete at the county level with a June 4 public hearing and final reading of the land transaction ordinance. Jerry Barlow, Pioneer chairman, said once the deal is finalized he wants the water district to sell its Lake Hartwell property where it originally wanted to build the plant. When it comes to other infrastructure within the planned industrial park, Oconee County is going to make room for an electric transmission line. At last night’s County Council meeting, Administrator Scott Moulder announced the county has been requested to grant easements for Central Electric Power Cooperative to expand its Northwest Anderson-Southern Oconee transmission line.
