The North Lowndes Water Treatment Plant disinfects groundwater with chlorine.

Officials say after the chlorine cleans the water, a byproduct is formed, but the Georgia Environmental Protection Division says this plant creates too much of the byproduct.


So on Tuesday, County Commissioners voted to upgrade the facility.

Lowndes Co. Utilities Director Mike Allen says, “Any effect that would have on the citizens would be over many many years and right now, this is going to be treated over the next twelve months.”

The upgraded system will ensure the plant meets state standards.

The project will be paid for with sales tax money and will be completed by December 2009.
