Water Conservation and Public Utilities

  1. Tour of Middle Oconee Water Reclamation Facility

    March 12, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Middle Oconee Water Reclamation Facility

    We all know how much we depend on water in our everyday lives. Once you send water down the drain, it needs to be cleaned and recycled - this historically has been been described as wastewater treatment. Now, because of the large advances in treatment technologies and regulations in the federal Clean Water Act, we reclaim, refresh, and return the water you have used. Discover the steps in this process with a personal tour of our facility. We call it a Water Reclamation Facility, because "reclaiming" means to bring the water back to its usable condition. The high quality water produced by our water reclamation facilities can be used in irrigation and safely returned to our waterways. We reuse it within our water reclamation facilities for daily operations, cleaning of facility equipment, and irrigation on the property, which cuts down on costs and conserves water.
