YCNGA was created by Act of the South Carolina General Assembly in 1954. It is therefore a political subdivision of the State that operates as a not-for-profit corporation and is governed by a ten-member Board. The Board is appointed by the Governor based on recommendations from the York County Council and the councils of the municipalities served. YCNGA is authorized to issue Revenue Bonds to finance expansion. All borrowing must be repaid from system revenues. YCNGA is not authorized to levy or collect any form of taxes and may not pledge the faith and credit of any other government entity.
All net revenues that have not been pledged, covenanted or contracted for other uses, must be used to expand the system or reduce customer rates.

THANK YOU SO MUCH… I don’t believe we really appreciate turning on a faucet to hot water until it’s not available. Your service man was very informative as well as nice. Thank you again for the customer service and taking care of my concern.
I want you to know what a fine young man you have in your employee, Jon. I feel like he needs a “shout out” because he was so well mannered, kind and knowledgeable.
Yesterday I received fast, friendly and knowledgeable service from Travis and Tyrone – they were VERY thorough in their work and treated me like I was the Queen of England! Ms. Temple
