While pursuing upgrades and expansion to its collection and conveyance system, the Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority (PCWASA) hasn’t overlooked necessary repairs or improvements needed at its two wastewater treatment plants.
Earlier this year, the Authority completed approximately $40,000 in repairs to the electrical control wiring at the Rockaway Water Reclamation Facility. Rockaway is a sequence batch reactor (SBR) plant with a permit to discharge all of its treated wastewater (4 million gallons per day capacity) into Line Creek. However, wastewater from Rockaway also is used for irrigation of the recreational fields located near the plant on Highway 74.
In addition, the Authority is pursuing extensive improvements to the south clarifiers at the Larry B. Turner/Line Creek Water Reclamation Facility. Contractors from Willow Construction were awarded the low bid of $304,650 to upgrade these 20-year-old clarifiers and other portions of the plant.
Treated wastewater from the Line Creek/Larry B. Turner Plant is discharged either into Line Creek or Flat Creek, though up to 1.1 million gallons can be used for irrigation at Planterra Ridge Golf Course.
