With a current average flow of 3.36 million gallons per day, our competent staff of 14 employees is trained and certified in the wastewater treatment process to safeguard the effluent back into the First Broad River.

waste_water_plant_2_000An on site composting facility is also a part of the daily operations of the wastewater treatment plant.  Approximately 1,200 tons of Class A/EQ (excellent quality) product is produced annually.  Not only is the compost totally organic, it is great to use on your lawn, plants, trees or gardens.  Compost is an excellent soil amendment to red dirt (clay), which is predominate in our area.  Our composting facility uses storm debris (trees, limbs, etc.) and sludge to produce a quality product.  This process eliminates approximately 800 tons of debris taking up landfill space.
