About Us

The Douglasville-Douglas County Water and Sewer Authority (“WSA” or “the Authority”) has been delivering quality water and wastewater service to Douglas County residents since 1986, and we have been performing our innovative stormwater management service since 2003.

Our motto, “Award-Winning Service For Our Local Community”, shows the pride which exists in the quality of these services, and we operate with that mission – and you – in mind 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our goal in water and wastewater treatment and stormwater management is to protect, maintain, and enhance the environment, public health, safety, and welfare of the general public. Over the years, WSA’s services, including stormwater management, have won awards locally, state-wide, and nationally.

With over $400 million in net-fixed assets, we currently have the ability to treat 23 million gallons of drinking water and approximately six million gallons of wastewater each day. We’re not only keeping pace with our booming community, but we’re also making major changes now that will meet demands for decades to come. In June of 2008, we completed a two-year project to build the new South Central Wastewater Treatment Plant, currently permitted to treat 6.0 million gallons of wastewater per day with the expansion capability to treat 12.0 million gallons per day.
