OJRSA to Celebrate Water Professionals Day

SENECA, S.C. -- The Oconee Joint Regional Sewer Authority team will join with the rest of the state next week to observe the first Water Professionals Day.


State House members have officially declared the first Monday in March of each year as Water Professionals Day beginning with the first observance on Monday, March 4, 2024, and continuing annually on the first Monday of March.


With the passing of this legislation, professionals working in all areas of the wastewater, drinking water, and stormwater industries are honored for their dedication to serving the communities and residents of South Carolina. 


The bill, supported by Oconee legislators including President of the Senate Thomas Alexander, and Representatives Bill Sandifer and Bill Whitmire, was signed into law on Thursday, February 29 by Governor Henry McMaster.


“Our team members at the OJRSA are water professionals of the highest standard, and it is because of their fantastic service that our community can thrive, while ensuring residents and businesses continue to enjoy the high quality of life that we expect in the Golden Corner of South Carolina,” said Chris Eleazer, executive director of the OJRSA.
