The Jim Blanchard Water Treatment Plant is located at 832 Point Comfort Road, Martinez, GA 30907. The plant has gone through many changes since it was built in 1973. We now have the capability to treat up to 46 million gallons of water per day from the Savannah River.
One of the changes at the plant included replacing the gas chlorine feed system with a Sodium Hypochlorite Generation system. Columbia County made this change, in part, due to safety concerns. The Jim Blanchard Water Treatment Plant is located in close proximity to populated neighborhoods. We felt that this change was important because the on-site storage of large quantities of gas chlorine could be hazardous. The new hypochlorite system is much safer for our neighbors, customers, as well as our employees.

Our plant is manned twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week, 365 days per year to serve the public. The following chart displays how much water the Jim Blanchard Plant pumped out to customers in 2014.
