Open House at Amerson Plant set for May 9

April 26, 2013 by Dr. Chris Wood

Officials at the Macon Water Authority invite the public to join them for an open house at the Amerson Water Treatment Plant (above) on Thursday, May 9, to celebrate Drinking Water Week.

To celebrate national Drinking Water Week, which will be recognized May 5 – 11, across the country this year, the Macon Water Authority (MWA) will be hosting an open house at its Frank C. Amerson, Jr. Water Treatment Facility on Thursday, May 9, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free, and refreshments and giveaways will be provided.

During the open house, citizens will be able to learn about the drinking water production process while touring the Authority’s award-winning water treatment facility.

The Amerson Plant has been selected as the “Plant of the Year” in the state of Georgia four times since opening in 2000, in addition to producing the “Best Tasting Drinking Water in North America,” as judged by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) during a best of the best taste test competition in 2009.

The open house also will provide guests with insights on how the Authority makes sure MWA drinking water is safe and secure, as well as what the Authority continually does to protect the community’s water supply and natural resources.

For more than 30 years, the AWWA has celebrated Drinking Water Week as a means for utilities and the communities they serve to recognize the vital role water plays in the daily lives of citizens. This year’s theme for National Drinking Water Week is “what to know about H2O.”
