The Athens-Clarke County Public Utilities Department treats and delivers about 15 million gallons of drinking water each day to about 110,000 people.  Our  system has the capacity to produce 36 million gallons per day and deliver it through 785 miles of water lines.

The Utility provides wastewater collection and treatment to all industrial and commercial customers and approximately 75 percent of the residential population. The sanitary sewer system consists of approximately 470 miles of gravity sewers, one pump station, and three water reclamation facilities (WRFs).
