    Wastewater Pollution Control
    Serving you since 1967!

    Summerville WWTPThe Water Pollution Control Plant is the wastewater treatment facility for the City of Summerville. The plant site is located south of the City on the Chattooga River. The original plant was constructed in 1967, with several additions and improvements, one in 1988, and the next being in 2008. The plant’s capacity is 2 million gallons per day with a weekly maximum of 2.5 million gallons days. Currently the plant is operating at approximately 1.6 million gallons per day.

    There are six full time employees that include 1 Superintendent and 1 lead operator and 4 licensed operators that operate and maintain the plant. The Superintendent is a Class 1 Operator and all the other operators are Class 2 or higher and go thru a program of experience on the job, classes at state approved sites, and testing at state sites for licensing. They must continue to attend classes annually to maintain the license. Operators are expected to be able to work in all weather conditions and to have mechanical and industrial electrical skills.

    The City of Summerville Water Pollution Control Plant is strongly committed to conserving our region's limited natural resources and remaining good stewards of the environment. This commitment, along with our ongoing re-investment in our systems and operations, enables The WPCP to keep pace with the area's growing wastewater needs while supporting the natural environment of the region, both present and future.   In keeping with our environmental and customer service commitments, We recently (2008) completed construction or improvements to our wastewater facilities. These facilities located off Red Oak Road are making a positive environmental impact on the Chattooga River, while improving our ability to efficiently meet our customers' wastewater treatment requirements.   

    To keep in stride with our customers’ needs, we continue to leverage innovations in technology and processes to maintain a state-of-the-art wastewater operation. Our wastewater system serves over 1,800 customers processing approximately 1.6 million gallons of wastewater per day on average. Some 80 percent of this waste load is industrial. Current treatment capacity is 2 million gallons per day(MGD).

    Summerville WWTP ClarifierThe cities wastewater comes to our 2 million gallon per day activated sludge facility where it is treated to an acceptable level before discharging to the Chattooga River. This is a biological process that reduces the organic and solids content of the water to meet a Georgia Environmental Protection Division discharge permit. The plant consists of a Bar Screen, 2 Rotary Drum Screens, 2 Aeration Basins (total 2.4 million gallon capacity), 2 Secondary .5mg Clarifiers, Digester, Septage Receiving Area, Ultra Violet disinfection with chlorination and dechlorination as a back up. Chlorination is accomplished with gaseous chlorine and dechlorination is done with sulfur dioxide.

    Summerville WWTP DigesterA Staff of 6 state certified operators fine-tune this biological process to produce environmentally acceptable finished water. The biosolids generated in this plant are digested through a 660,000 gallon Digester and then ran through one of two belt filter presses to be dewatered before it is applied to farmland for ultimate disposal. This is a state approved land application program that has been ongoing for over 20 years. Our program has received state and national recognition and many farmers have benefited from it.

    Pre-treatment Requirements

    Summerville WPCP is proud to serve industrial users within our vibrant business community, and we’re committed to the meticulous management of our wastewater system in order to serve the needs of Summerville’s current and future industrial community.  To ensure the integrity of our system, we require pretreatment of industrial wastewater exceeding specific standards, to be performed on the wastewater before it enters our collection system. Industrial users must complete the Industrial Users’ Survey and Wastewater Discharge Permit Application and receive approval via a permit in order to ensure that all wastewater entering Summerville’s WPCP system has been properly pretreated. 

    Reuse Water

    Summerville’s wastewater treatment plant uses innovative design and ultraviolet radiation technology as well as chlorine disinfection to treat wastewater to a level very close to that of drinking water. Water from this facility is made available as a source of cost competitive reuse water for local industries located near the plant.

    Ultimately, the Summerville WPCP even handles waste from septic tanks at our treatment plant. We work closely with waste haulers to ensure all waste is disposed of properly. We only accepts waste generated in Chattooga county. Accordingly, we require all waste haulers to apply for a Waste Hauler Discharge Permit. We do not accept Fats, Oils, And Greases.

     

    Manifest: Summerville WPCP provides manifests for tracking and recording the origin and type of waste being hauled and discharged. Fees for septic loads are the manifest fee of $25.00 and 4 cents per gallon. Septic haulers are allowed to dump between the hours of 8:00am – 4:00pm Monday – Friday. No dumping on weekends and holidays.

    Grease PhotoGrease and water don't mix….especially in a sewer system!! Having a sewer back-up in your home or business can be a troublesome event! How can customers prevent these from happening? Take care to properly dispose of cooking grease. Grease is the number #1 cause of sewer blockages in homes. 

     

    How does grease get into the sewer system?

    From household drains as well as from poorly maintained grease traps in restaurants and other businesses.

     

    What can you do to prevent sewer overflows caused by grease?

    Never pour grease down sink drains or into toilets. (Home garbage disposals do not keep grease out of plumbing systems. Products, such as detergents, that claim to dissolve grease may cause problems for someone else down the line.)Scrape grease and food scraps into a can, disposable container, or ziplock bag and dispose of it with the garbage.Insert baskets/strainers in sink drains to catch food scraps and other solids and empty them into the trash.Other things you can do to prevent sewer blockages Don't put solids down the toilet or drain. Don't flush rags or cloth/disposable diapers. These items are commonly found in sewer blockages.

    Manhole PhotoA manhole is not a trashcan! Never lift a manhole cover! Summerville Sewer crews often find items like buckets, cinder blocks, limbs, construction materials and other large pieces of garbage that have been disposed of in manholes. These items can very quickly cause blockages, which can result in the sewer backing up in your home or your neighbor's home!

    If you see someone putting improper materials in the sewage system or down manholes, please call The City of Summerville immediately at (706) 859-0918. The next sewer backup could be in YOUR home or business!
