The MWA is known for the quality of water produced at its Frank C. Amerson, Jr. Water Treatment Plant, which will be open to the public for tours on Thursday May 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Open House at the Amerson Plant is a means for the Authority to celebrate National Drinking Water Week, which is recognized nationally from May 7-13, this year.

During the Amerson Plant Open House, guests will be able to tour the award-winning facility, from the intake at the Ocmulgee River to the filtration system to the finished drinking water storage and water quality laboratory, all critical parts of the process that assures customers are receiving the highest quality drinking water. The Authority also will provide refreshments and giveaways during the day.

The Amerson Plant is a recent recipient of the GAWP Gold Award for 100% permit compliance during 2016. Since opening in 2000, the Amerson Plant is a five-time winner of the GAWP’s “Plant of the Year” Award in Georgia.
