Gov. Nikki Haley recently appointed civil engineer and management professional Chip Fogleman commissioner for Renewable Water Resources (ReWa), a firm providing services and sustainability education in South Carolina’s upstate area.
Fogleman is a member of the South Carolina Society of Professional Engineers, the American Water Works Association and the Water and Pollution Control Association. He earned a B.S. in civil engineering from Clemson University.
“We extend a warm welcome Chip as our new commissioner,” ReWa Executive Director Graham Rich said. “With his background in civil engineering, we know he will bring valuable knowledge and expertise to his role on the board.”
ReWa provides wastewater treatment services to Greenville County and sections of Spartanburg, Laurens and Anderson counties, maintaining sewer infrastructure for the growing economy from its headquarters in Greenville.
As president and principal of Fant, Reichert & Fogleman Inc., Fogleman brings over 33 years of experience in civil engineering to the organization’s board, with knowledge of storm detention, erosion control, water and sewer distribution, collection systems, computer modeling, pump station design and construction management.
ReWa strives to protect, clean and renew the community’s valuable environmental resources. The firm places a priority on informative customer service, accessibility to resources for prospective vendors, and strong public education offerings.
Outreach programs such as “Be Freshwater Friendly” promote a cleaner environment to protect South Carolina’s waterways. ReWa also provides information on sustainable yard upkeep, pipe maintenance and septic systems, and disposal of cleansers, paints and other products.
