Today Gwinnett County’s Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced it will allow customers to truck reclaimed water for uses such as street sweeping, dust control, sewer cleaning, landscape irrigation, professional chemical/pesticide application and concrete batch plants from the F. Wayne Hill Water Resources Center in Buford. “We believe that expanding the usage of our reclaimed water will provide a valuable service for our residents, assist in preserving our raw water supply and protect the environment,” said Commission Chairman Charles Bannister.

Customers will be required to meet regulatory requirements stipulated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division and must agree to use the reclaimed water for certain purposes only. There are five steps to sign up for this new service: 1) contact the Department of Water Resources or visit the County’s website for information on transporting reclaimed water; 2) complete online training; 3) pass truck inspection by DWR staff ($25 annual fee); 4) apply for trucking service at the DWR office; and 5) acquire a permit ($100 annual fee) and certification card.
