Georgia City’s Sewage Plant Plan Gives Options, Journal Reports

Oct. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Roswell’s city council agreed to apply for a state loan to build a $16 million treatment plant to provide its residents with another water option besides Fulton County, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Mayor Jere Wood said Roswell, which gets about 80 percent of its water from Fulton County, needs to protect itself by having its own water system and not be subject to price rises when “a monopoly” has no competition, the paper reported.

Roswell’s sewer treatment plant is 80 years old so the council voted 6-0 to apply for a new facility through a low-interest Georgia Environmental Finance Authority loan, the paper said. Only those residents served by the new plant would pay on the 20-year loan, or about $1 more a month on their water bill, city officials told the paper.
