Sewer System Maintenance and Construction

As one might expect, a system with the size and complexity of the MWA’s requires continual maintenance and construction.  To accomplish this, MWA Sewer Conveyance has three combination vacuum/jetter trucks that can either pump out sewers or clean them with high-pressure water.  The Authority also operates one jetter truck that only has the capacity to clean.

The MWA has sub-divided Bibb County into a total of 14 basins or sub-basins for cleaning and maintenance purposes.  There are four crews that spend each day cleaning the basins.  Basins have been prioritized based on the condition of the pipe and the number of problems in the past, so the Authority can establish a daily cleaning program for each of these 14 basins.

The Authority's master plan of capital improvements has a long-term goal to provide sewer connections and conveyance for the entire city of Macon and Bibb County, making it one of the few systems in the state to provide such comprehensive access to sewer services.
