About Us

S.B.C.U.D. has been providing reliable water service to our customers since 1958. We started out 50 years ago with only 1,300 customers; today our service has flourished into over 14,000 homes, businesses, and schools in Blount County, Friendsville, and Louisville, which is approximately 30% of the county's population. Our service area covers 150 square miles and incorporates 5 decentralized wastewater systems.  On average our customers use 3.5 million gallons of water each day.

The service of providing quality tap water is often taken for granted when we turn on a faucet in our homes, but we can tell you from experience it is no easy task to provide this quality service. We manage one of the greatest natural resources that is on this earth, that is essential for life. Our earth is covered in 70% water and only 1.6% is fresh water. We have a phenomenal team of people at S.B.C.U.D. that we are proud to be a part of that provides this quality service to Blount County. We operate on the principle of proactively planning today so we will be prepared tomorrow. As a customer, you are very important to us and a very important part of this business, and we thank you. If you have questions or problems or a specific need related to our service, please contact our office at any time.

 Our service area
is one of the fastest growing areas in East Tennessee as we have consistently added 400 new customers each year for the past five years. In the summer of 2004 we began operation of our new state-of-the-art Water Treatment Facility located on the southern most end of State Route 129. Our new facility gave us the independence we needed to continue to provide our rapid growing service area with abundant, reliable water service for many years to come.

SBCUD operates on the principle of proactively planning today so we will be prepared tomorrow. Our Senior Leadership and staff are committed to our customers needs and we welcome the opportunity to answer any questions or concerns you may have, please feel free to contact our office at any time.
