********************************  PUBLIC   NOTICE  ********************************

December 28, 2108

Due to heavy flows from the recent rainfall, the Ellijay-Gilmer County Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) experienced flows that were too high for optimal plant performance which caused discharge of approximately 671,600 Gallons of partially treated wastewater into the Coosawattee River.  The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has been notified and Ellijay-Gilmer County Water & Sewerage Authority (Authority) employees are following EPD protocol for such a discharge.  The discharge occurred at the WWTP effluent flume located at 64 Merk Davis Drive; a sign has been placed to notify the public of the site of the discharge.

 

If you have any questions concerning this issue, please contact the Ellijay-Gilmer County Water & Sewerage Authority at (706) 276-2202, or the Wastewater Treatment Plant at (706) 635-7930.
