Construction Complete on New Lab

After much planning and careful consideration in the design, construction on the new CWS lab facility in Clemson, SC is complete. The facility is located at 109 Reid Street, just a few miles from the current lab site, but now less than a mile away from the Clemson City Hall.

According to the CWS Lab Manager, Emily Russ, the new state-of the-art building will be highly visible to passers-by and will house the latest technology for laboratory testing services. “We are excited to be moving into our new lab and office space in just a couple of weeks. This building will enable us to provide better service to our clients.” The move in date is set for November 14.

Hancock Named Project Manager In South Carolina

CWS welcomes David Hancock as a new Project Manager in South Carolina. David has been involved in the water and wastewater industry since 1987 and has stuck with it since. From working in management roles for most of his career, including several municipalities across the state of SC, he believes that his past experience and expertise will help him efficiently carry out any CWS needs. David will be based out
of Hartsville, SC and managing the facilities in the surrounding area.

Protecting public health by properly treating wastewater is a top priority for David. “My main objective is to provide clean, safe water to citizens to keep them healthy, happy and satisfied.” Protecting the
environment, preventing diseases, customer satisfaction and ensuring that staff love their jobs are most important to me, he says. “Here at CWS, I love that everyone supports each other. I know that if I ever need help, I can get it from several different avenues.”

David is married to his wife of 32 years and they have two children and two grandsons. In his spare time, he enjoys watching sports and fishing.

With your oversight, the City’s water and sewer operations have greatly improved. CWS clearly understands the needs of the City, its operations, and our desire to provide a first-class interaction with the citizens of Fayetteville. Your organized approach and effective communication allow for key decision-making in providing cost-effective solutions required on all water and sewer-related projects. I greatly appreciate your team’s attention to detail and quality and look forward to our continued partnership.

The knowledge, dedication and professionalism of the Clearwater Solutions personnel has turned our plant operations around completely since they were hired by the City. They have taken our wastewater treatment plant from chronic monthly violations to violation free for the past several months! It truly feels like a partnership instead of just another contracted service.


CWS, Mark Pressgrove, and his team of professionals always go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to the needs of the Town of Walls’ sewer system and our residents. CWS is always quick in response to our sewer issues and determining the problem in a swift manner saving the Town time and money. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.


ClearWater Solutions, LLC has gone above and beyond in operating and maintenance of the Hall County sewer system of 0.75 MGD plant, 19 pump stations and over 350,000 LF of mains. They have provided a high quality of customer service to both Hall County staff and its citizens. I strongly recommend them for anyone who’s looking to hire an outstanding O&M company.
