ESG’s partnership with Forsyth County began in January 2010 when ESG assumed operation of four wastewater treatment plants—which has since expanded to six plants. In January 2011, Fosyth County chose ESG to operate, maintain and manage the County’s 28 MGD Water Treatment Facility.

Both the water and wastewater treatment plants are highly unique and complex. The six wastewater plants include activated sludge, Aqua-Aerobic sequencing batch reactor, and membrane filtration technologies. The water treatment facility features super pulsating clarifiers with ozone disinfection systems. The ESG/Forsyth County Team was awarded Plant of the Year for one of the WPCPs in its first year entering the competition!
