Lake Keowee Source Water Protection Team


Lakes Keowee and Jocassee play a vital role in the Upstate, not only for as a source of drinking water but also for recreational boating and fishing. The Lake Keowee Source Water Protection Team (LKSWPT) is focused on preserving our pristine Lake Keowee and Jocassee Watersheds. These efforts from their inception in 2017 have focused on identifying and monitoring the water quality of the two lakes. The LKSWPT was formed and is funded by Duke Energy. The team’s specific objective is to undertake activities to protect, maintain and improve water quality in the watershed by addressing both existing water quality issues and also identifying problems that could occur as the area continues to develop.
