Water & Street Department

Jacobs (formerly CH2M HILL OMI) has provided O&M services to the City of Swainsboro since September 1992. The original scope of work included O&M of a wastewater treatment plant, 6 wells, 20 lift stations, and the collection and distribution system including meter reading. The wastewater treatment plant is rated at 3 mgd, and processes at the plant include extended aeration, secondary clarifiers, and aerobic digestion. The treated water supply system’s capacity is 1.8 mgd. It has six pump stations, 80 miles of distribution line, and six water wells. In September 1993, the City of Swainsboro added operation of the entire public works department including vehicle maintenance to the scope of work.

The project is organized into four departments: water, wastewater, public works, and vehicle maintenance. The project is responsible for maintenance of all rights-of-way, including trimming and edging. Their responsibilities also include the landscape maintenance of two area cemeteries, and aiding the local golf course with drainage difficulties. The team is responsible for sampling and meter reading, and also administers a land application program and an industrial pretreatment program (IPP).
