The 1.0 MGD SBR waste treatment facility treats all wastewater coming from the City of Blairsville’s gravity collection system. The plant also receives waste from three pressurized lift stations including Walmart, NGTC, and the Union County Industrial Park.
The City of Blairsville Wastewater Treatment facility consists of several operations including two SBR (Sequencing Batch Reactor) tanks, 3 Aerobic Digestive Tanks, a Chlorine Contact Chamber, and a Huber Screw Press system (the 1st in a Georgia municipal facility). There is also a fully operational laboratory on site where Georgia State required permitting tests are performed. A state-of-the-art computerized system ensures the treatment plant is fully operational at all times.
Jody Cook says, “Besides keeping the system running smoothly, doing regular preventive maintenance, and operational testing, our two man team maintains all the electrical and mechanical equipment at the facility.” We consider ourselves water managers, as our job is to protect the community’s water resources for future generations.
