Augusta, Georgia

ESG Operations, Inc is responsible for the operation, maintenance and management of the City of Augusta’s wastewater treatment facilities.

ESG’s partnership with Augusta Utility department began January 1, 2010, when ESG Operations assumed operation, maintenance and management of the 46.1 MGD J.B. Messerly WPCP that uses 300 acres of manmade wetlands for tertiary treatment following the main treatment processes. Anaerobic digestion stabilizes the Biosolids from the JB Messerly WPCP, which are beneficially reused via a land application program consisting of over 3000 acres. Additionally, ESG manages the 2.2 MGD Spirit Creek WPCP and Augusta’s Industrial Pretreatment Program consisting of 47 permitted industries. The staff of 35 ESG associates in Augusta, GA operate the largest wastewater treatment facility subject to a public/private partnership agreement in the southeastern United States.

ESG faced a number of challenges during the first year of service in Augusta and the following is what we view as our most significant achievements.
