Fulton County to Break Ground on Major Infrastructure Expansion | Print |

Fulton County Commission Vice-Chairman Bob Ellis and the Fulton County Public Works Department will break ground on improvements and the expansion of the Little River Water Reclamation Facility that will more than double the output of the current facility.   The official groundbreaking event is scheduled for Friday, May 12, 2017 at 10 a.m. at the facility located at 2415 Cox Road, Woodstock, Georgia 30188.   The work on the facility will include the replacement and upgrade of equipment and structures with the latest technology in waste water treatment.  

“This upgrade and expansion is  absolutely necessary to accommodate the growth  in this portion of North Fulton County,” said Commissioner Bob Ellis. “Upgrading the Little River plant will allow us to continue to provide residents with the world-class water and sewer services that they expect now and well into the future.”

Upon completion, the work at the Little River Water Reclamation Facility will greatly improve the waste water treatment in North Fulton County and several surrounding communities.   The treatment capacity of the upgraded facility will increase from 1 million gallons per day (MGD) to more than 2.6 MGD.   Improvements will also include the installation of an odor control system, the removal of all unused buildings and structures, construction of a new facility to house equipment and administration, and the installation of a membrane filtration system.  

The plant serves the Mountain Park area and nearby communities in North Fulton as well as parts of Cherokee County.   The plant property is located at the confluence of Rocky Creek and Little River adjacent to the Settindown Creek Golf Course.  The renovation and expansion project at the plant is scheduled to be completed by April, 2020.
