Cherokee County Water and Sewerage Authority strives to provide high-quality water and sewer service to more than 170,000 residents in Cherokee County, Georgia.

The historic Etowah River originates in the mountains of Lumpkin County north of Dahlonega and flows in a southerly direction into Cherokee County. The Hollis Q. Lathem Reservoir is created from the waters of Yellow Creek, another North Georgia mountain stream. These are the main sources of Cherokee County’s excellent water.
