Over 40 Years of Experience
The City of Cumming is no newcomer to the wastewater treatment field. For almost 50 years the City has addressed Cumming’s need for wastewater treatment and environmental integrity. The City built the area’s first wastewater treatment facility, a five-acre oxidation pond, in 1963. Several years later in 1991, the City moved the treatment facility and constructed a state-of-the-art 2 Million-Gallon-Per-Day (2 MGD) Advanced Water Reclamation Facility on Bethelview Road. In 1999, the City expanded the Bethelview Road facility to 3 MGD. Currently, the Bethelview Road AWRF is designed to treat an average of 8 MGD of domestic wastewater. The ability to offer this level of service empowers the City to welcome quality growth and development to the area.
The City currently holds a Waste Load Allocation from the Georgia EPD for 7.5 MGD of wastewater discharge into Lake Lanier. This new facility is planned to be in operation by 2025.
