PCWASA added Lift Station #36 at Meade Field (shown above) in the fall of 2013, and the utility has plans to add Lift Station #37 this coming year.

As the Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority (PCWASA) marked the one-year anniversary of the opening of the Meade Field Pump Station #36, the utility was making plans to construct another lift station to accommodate new development and subsequent customers coming online.

During the August PCWASA Meeting, the Authority Board authorized $272,000 from the utility’s Renewal and Extension Fund to invest in the Lift Station #37 project. The new lift station will be located along Highway 54 North, across from the Publix shopping center. It will serve a proposed development of Southtree Properties, who will share the costs of construction according to a proposed developer’s agreement with the Authority. The new lift station also will accommodate any future growth in the area and potential tie-ins from existing properties in the vicinity currently on septic.

Last fall, Authority contractors from Willow Construction completed the work on Lift Station #36 for the low bid of approximately $525,000. This lift station primarily serves two new residential developments along Highway 74 – The Gates and Somerby at Peachtree City – while enhancing the availability of sewer for other potential customers in this area. The Gates is a 90 lot single family residential subdivision, while Somerby is a senior citizen assisted living and memory care community.
