I hate to be a party pooper, but the 50 year celebration of wastewater treatment in Athens-Clarke County (ACC) must come to a close. Athenians are fortunate to have essential and exceptional wastewater services that safely reclaim, refresh, and return the water we use to the environment. Our treatment systems have continually grown and improved as the community has expanded and technology has advanced over the last 50 years. Water reclamation plays a significant role in our health and quality of life in Athens.
|Lily Anne Phibian reminds us our|
toilets are not trash cans.
|Tommy Hall recycles used FOG at|
one of several collection sites in ACC.
|Athens Council on Aging replaced|
old toilets with new, low flow ones
and repaired leaks to conserve water.
We ended 2012 with a greater appreciation for you, and all of the Unsung Heroes, who helped Athens-Clarke County reach 50 years of successfully reclaiming, refreshing, and returning our waters to the source. This has been something to celebrate. Party on.
