Utoy Creek

Located in southwest Fulton County, the Utoy Creek WRC has had new sand filters installed to lower the level of phosphorus in treated wastewater. This element of phosphorus control enables the facility to meet State permit requirements. A chlorination/dechlorination disinfection system is in place to meet current and future demands, Utoy's treatment capacity was expanded from 36 MGD (million gallons per day) to 44 MGD. Sludge, the solid by-product of the sewage treatment process, is incinerated and, less frequently, landfilled. Future plans include installation of a new heat dryer technology to treat digested primary and waste activated sludge, to produce a marketable soil conditioning and fertilizer.

A new Administration building, with an onsite water quality laboratory, is under construction.
