Short report on company website
The Douglasville-Douglas County Water and Sewer Authority (“WSA” or “the Authority”) has been delivering quality water and wastewater service to Douglas County residents since 1986, and we have been performing our innovative stormwater management service since 2003.
Our motto, “Award-Winning Service For Our Local Community”, shows the pride which exists in the quality of these services, and we operate with that mission – and you – in mind 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our goal in water and wastewater treatment and stormwater management is to protect, maintain, and enhance the environment, public health, safety, and welfare of the general public. Over the past 24 years, WSA’s services, including the recent service of stormwater management, have won awards locally, state-wide, and nationally.
With over $390 million in net-fixed assets, we currently have the ability to treat 16 million gallons of drinking water and approximately six million gallons of wastewater each day. We’re not only keeping pace with our booming community, but we’re also making major changes now that will meet demands for decades to come. In June of 2008, we completed a two-year project to build the new South Central Wastewater Treatment Plant, currently permitted to treat 6.0 million gallons of wastewater per day with the expansion capability to treat 12.0 million gallons per day. In May of 2009, the ten-year project to raise the level of the Dog River Reservoir an additional 10 feet was completed. The extra 10 feet increases the storage capacity of raw water from 1.2 billion gallons to almost 2 billion gallons. Most recently, in August of 2009, construction began on a two-year expansion project which, when completed, will increase the treatment capacity of the Bear Creek Water Treatment Plant from the current 16 million gallons per day to 23 million gallons per day.
