History

The Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2012.  The Authority, originally created April 17, 1973 by Act of the Georgia Legislature (known as the Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority Act), operates under provisions of House Bill Number 1132, Act 411, enacted during the 1987 Session of the General Assembly of the State of Georgia (Ga. Laws 1987, pp.5085, et seq., as amended) as a public, nonprofit corporation. 

The primary purpose of the Authority is to acquire, operate, and maintain facilities that provide for the collection, treatment, and disposal of sewage.  (Fayette County Water System provides water treatment and distribution to the residents of Peachtree City.)  In managing the sewer system of the City of Peachtree City, the Authority is empowered to do all things necessary to accomplish this purpose.

The Authority, as a utility, is charged with collection and treatment of public, commercial, and industrial wastewater with the City.  The Authority owns and operates the entire sewer system infrastructure located in Peachtree City.  The Authority' related services, in addition to the collection and treatment of sewage, include maintenance of sewer lines and installation of new sewer infrastructure.

The Authority is authorized to acquire, construct, reconstruct, improve, better and extend projects for the collection, treatment, and disposal of sewage waste and any related services.

The origin of the sewer system in Peachtree City actually dates back to 1970, when operations commenced to provide some form of sewer services for City residents and businesses.  The system was acquired by the Authority from Georgia Utilities Company on May 29, 1997.  Since that time, the Authority has owned and operated the public sewer system in Peachtree City.
