With the opening of the new Port Wentworth Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) off O’Leary Road, the City is wisely preparing for its growth in the next decade. The new WWTF eliminates a non-compliant point source for pollution and improves the water quality in the Savannah River which benefits the entire ecosystem. The WWTF’s state-of-the-art process produces a high-quality effluent that can be used for a variety of “reuse” activities such as lawn irrigation. This facility is the only treatment plant in the State of Georgia, maybe the U.S., capable of producing an effluent that will not degrade the receiving stream. The WWTF is designed to treat 2.0 MGD of wastewater and is expandable to 4.0 MGD. The USEPA, GAEPD, SCDHEC and the City of Port Wentworth worked together to secure the permit of this unique facility. The WWTF is providing long-term economic benefits to the City of Port Wentworth by ensuring the continued availability of its wastewater treatment capacity to accommodate future growth needs of the City.
