Forsyth County News

The Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department will hold a public meeting today on potential improvements to the wastewater system.

The meeting will take place in the lobby of the Forsyth County Administration Building from 5 to 7 p.m.

Staff will talk about needed improvements and discuss preferences in regards to the proposed modifications.

The plants under review include Dick Creek, James Creek and Manor water reclamation facilities.

At Dick Creek, the proposed operational modifications would allow reuse water to be pumped to customers or discharged to the creek year-round.

A year-round discharge has also been proposed at James Creek, as well as pumping treated reuse water into the adjacent Windermere plant line and the creek.

A pump station at the Manor facility has been proposed for use as a cold-weather discharge into Chicken Creek.

The environmental impact of the proposed improvements will be evaluated and included in the county’s environmental information document, which is required by the state.

Public participation is considered essential to the selection and development of the final plan to be adopted prior to its approval by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Environmental Protection Division.

All public comments will be included in the document submitted to the EPD with the permit application.

A draft of the proposal is available for public inspection from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through today.
