At the present time, CCWSA maintains and operates two wastewater facilities. By collecting and treating wastewater, CCWSA is helping to protect streams, rivers and groundwater from contamination. This also helps protect public health and wildlife. To download a copy of CCWSA’s Sewerage Disposal Policy, click here.
Rose Creek Treatment Facility
The Rose Creek Facility is located off Wyngate Parkway in southern Cherokee County. It became operational in 1987. The plant is permitted to discharge flows of up to six million gallons per day of treated waters to Allatoona Lake.
Rose Creek incorporates Sequencing Batch Reactor technology to meet wastewater discharges at a quality higher than the permit limitations. These limitations are assigned under the National Pollutants Discharge Elimanation System Permit issued by the State of Georgia Environmental Protection Division.
The treated effluent from the Rose Creek Facility is pumped through a twenty-four inch force main from the plant site to Allatoona Lake and discharged at the bottom of the lake into an arm of the Etowah River.
Rose Creek also holds a four million gallons per day permit, from the State of Georgia, to supply reuse water from the facility to the Towne Lake Hills Golf Course for irrigation purposes.
Fitzgerald Creek Wastewater Facility
The Fitzgerald Creek Wastewater Facility is located off West Wiley Bridge Road in southeastern Cherokee County. This facility became operational in 1988. An upgrade to the facility was completed in the summer of 2008. CCWSA is permitted to discharge flows of up to five million gallons per day of treated waters to Little River from this facility.
Fitzgerald Creek incorporates the newest technology in Sequencing Batch Reactors to meet wastewater discharges at a quality higher than the permit limitations by the State of Georgia.
