Wastewater Treatment Facilities
The Peachtree City Water & Sewerage Authority operates two wastewater treatment facilities with a combined treatment capacity of six million gallons per day. Both facilities use the Activated Sludge Process for the removal of pollutants. Activated Sludge refers to the process of "farming" microorganisms by providing food and air. The microorganisms treat the wastewater through biological and chemical processes.
Line Creek WWTF
Located at 100 Aviation Way
Line Creek plant - a Carousel Plant Design - is capable of treating two million gallons of sewage per day. After the activated sludge treatment, the solids are separated from the water in the final clarifiers. Further treatment by filtration and Ultra Violet Disinfection complete the process. See below for a process flow diagram.
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit for our facility allows for the treated water from this facility to be beneficially
Water treated to this level is acceptable for use in a variety of ways.
Located at 1127 Highway 74 South
Rockaway plant - a Sequencing Batch Reactor Plant - is designed to treat four million gallons per day. All of the treatment processes take place in one tank. The sequences are coordinated through a Programmable Logic Controller. After the
Both treatment facilities generate sludge or biosolids. This sludge is rich in nutrients and organic matter. It is an ideal substance for soil
