In operation since 1973
Having been in operation since 1973, Reed Creek is the second oldest plant in the County behind Crawford Creek.
Currently, Reed Creek treats on average just below 3 million gallons per day, but it is capable of treating 4.6 million gallons of waste water a day. For comparison, the ordinary household toilet discharges approximately 1 gallon of water per flush; therefore, each flush is responsible for about 1 gallon of daily flow for each waste water treatment plant.
Reed Creek is staffed by one Head Operator and three Operators.
The Georgia Association of Water Professionals presents treatment plants with a Gold Award for complete and consistent compliance of their National Pollutant Disharge Ellimination System Permits (NPDES). Since the inception of this program, Reed Creek has been awarded the Gold Award for: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. This is an amazing accomplishment to achieve and shows the knowledge and skills that these operators possess.
