P.C. Simonton & Associates, Inc. along with Mayor Jim Thomas, City Manager Billy Edwards and Fort Stewart garrison commander Col. Todd Buchs joined other state and local officials in the Ribbon Cutting for the New Wastewater Reclamation Facility for the City of Hinesville.
The City of Hinesville received a $300,000 grant from the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority earlier this year to help with the estimated $21.9 million project. The City also received part of a $500,000 grant from the General Assembly in 2007 for water reuse projects in the surrounding counties.
This project was a fast track project to permit design and construct a 2.0 MGD facility in 30 months. P.C. Simonton & Associates, Inc. served as the City’s designer and project manager on the project. The project was completed on schedule and is supplying reuse water to a growing customer base. In addition to the Water Reclamation facility, the project included design and installation of almost 100,000 L.F. of reuse transmission main.
Though the official opening and ribbon cutting for the new treatment plant was on November 18, 2008, it has been in operation since August.
