Water Reclamation Centers (WRCs)
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.
