FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The expansion of the Forsyth County Water Treatment Plant is complete and the public is invited to tour the expansion during an open house scheduled for Thursday, May 23, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
"We would like to invite citizens to come to the plant during the open house to see the new expansion and learn about the technology that goes into treating our water," Director of Water and Sewer Tim Perkins said.
The expansion of the Forsyth County Water Treatment Plant incorporates membrane technology to further enhance the quality of finished water, increase efficiency, and provide the capability to treat an additional 12 million gallons of water daily.
The county opened the Water Treatment Plant in 2000. The recently completed expansion to the plant increases the total capacity that can be treated at the plant to 28 million gallons of water daily.
"In addition to the benefits this expansion will provide today, it was also constructed in such a way as to allow for additional expansion in the future," Perkins said. "The project was undertaken with an eye toward the county's future needs."
The Forsyth County Water Treatment Plant is located at 2255 Antioch Road. From Ga. 400, exit at Exit 16 (Pilgrim Mill Road) and travel west. Turn right onto Antioch Road. After traveling approximately 0.6 miles, the entrance to the Water Treatment Plant will be on your right.
