Spartanburg Water Commission adopts amendment to Lake H. Taylor Blalock Policies and Procedures document

SPARTANBURG – At its December 1, 2020, meeting, the Spartanburg Water Commission voted to adopt an amendment to the Policies and Procedures outlined for Lake H. Taylor Blalock.

The amendment modifies the current Tree and Vegetation Management Section of the Lake H. Taylor Blalock Policies and Procedures document, which took the place of the former Lake Blalock Buffer Management Plan.

This document, which provides guidance for residents adjoining the Spartanburg Water System property below the 720’ MSL Contour Line, originally received approval by the Commission on June 23 and took effect as of July 10, 2020.

The purpose of the recently approved amendment is to enhance the Tree and Vegetation Management Guidelines by providing consistency – and to standardize practices for contiguous landowners, providing clarification/definitions of trees, tree saplings, and shrubs/understory vegetation.

The newly adopted amendment pertains to pages 11-12 of the document – sections 2, 5, 6, and 7, “Tree and Vegetation Management.”

The revised Policies and Procedures document is available in both an e-reader version and printable document on our website, https://www.spartanburgwater.org/Blalock-policies-guidance.
