Infrastructure Of SLV

When choosing to live in a rural community like Savannah Lakes Village, infrastructure becomes very important. I know you’ll love finding yourself in a world of wonder with the Sumter National Forest all around you, the lake meandering through the neighborhoods, the wild life plentiful, yet feeling like your living in modern times with all the modern conveniences.

Savannah Lakes offers outstanding infrastructure throughout the village. There are 6 subdivisions within our village all having  paved streets, underground utilities, fiber-optic high speed Internet and digital entertainment, as well as county water and sewer. You do not have to give up a thing when you choose to live here.

Underground Electrical Service

Underground electrical lines are run throughout Savannah Lakes Village, with hook ups readily available for all undeveloped home sites. The Little River Electrical Coop (a member of the touchstone energy coop) is the electrical service provider for the community.  Little River Electric

Fiber-Optic Broadband

All our homes have state-of-the-art technology. The West Carolina Coop offers an extensive range of communication services, including the only major fiber-optic broadband network in South Carolina. In Savannah Lakes Village, every home and home site has fiber optic at the site, ready for connection. The fiber optic broadband currently delivers up to 100MB/sec for enhanced high definition entertainment and blazing fast Internet & Wi-Fi service. The fiber optic infrastructure will also handle larger broadband widths that may be needed in the future. With stress-free and affordable access to these services, you could work from home, trading the hectic city commute and traffic for the tranquility of the lake, golf courses and forest.

Cellular Service

The best wireless provider for our area is Verizon who provides exceptional service coverage in Savannah Lakes Village, on the lake, and the surrounding region.  Most other carriers have spotty coverage over this region of western South Carolina because they have chosen larger cities to focus coverage on.

Community Streets

Savannah Lakes Village includes 86 miles of county and state owned roads, providing paved access to all home sites. Streets within the community have a 25 miles per hour  speed limit, making the village streets popular for walking, jogging, golf cart traffic, and road biking. Of course there are main arteries with higher speed limits making it easy to get from one point to another.

County Water & Sewer

All home sites are equipped with McCormick County Water and Sewer hookups. Homeowners can have dual water meters, which provide a second meter without associated sewage charges for outdoor watering. As part of the community sewer system, interceptor tanks are installed during home construction process. The interceptor tank is a temporary holding tank for household wastewater that separates solid from liquid wastes and pumps the sewage into the main sewage lines that are then carried to the McCormick Sewage Treatment Plant through a series of lift stations.
