The Town Creek Water Treatment Plant consists of a water storage reservoir and 60 mgd water treatment plant on a 3,000-acre site in north Bibb and Jones Counties, Georgia. The $116-million plant began operation in 2001. GEC was involved with the project from its inception, providing all geotechnical and construction quality control services. GEC maintained an on-site laboratory on the project and had up to four technicians working on-site over a two-year period. Special features of this project included the use of an extensive French drain system, site undercutting, rock contouring and blast monitoring, on-site batch plant inspection, reinforced earth wall construction monitoring and metals inspection.
Macon Water Authority was the client for the Town Creek project. Design and construction management services were provided by Jordan Jones & Goulding of Atlanta, Georgia.
