Water System The construction of the Lake McIntosh project continues. Brad Cole, Inc., the dam and reservoir contractor is working on the spillway and the clearing of the lake bed. Eco-South has completed the construction of the wetland project and is working with the Corps of Engineers for approval and monitoring schedules. Willow Construction is the builder of the new raw water pump station. Peachtree City Airport Authority is moving the part of the existing raw water line from the pump station to the Crosstown Water Plant that is in the flight zone. The Board approved the concept plan for the park at Lake McIntosh and the project is being prepared to bid. The radio reading system from Badger Meter has been upgraded. The Orion radio read system offers more options than the previous Trace system. The Water System is doing an in-house change-out program. Badger Meter offered a free unit for every two units purchased. The Board approved the purchase, saving $1,000,000.00. The environmental regulations on Trihalemethanes (THM) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA) will change in the spring of 2012 and the Water System researched different solutions to continue to be in compliance. This will be a future $9,000,000.00 project. The implementation of a Geographic Information System (GIS) has resulted in the Water System acquiring a data base of valve locations that is being updated. Upon review of the Water System disaster plan quick connects for portable generators were added to some of the pump stations. The Water System maintains and operates the parks at Lake Horton, Lake Kedron and Starr’s Mill. This year the 1907 Starr’s Mill building was repainted, the parking area graveled, and more tables added to the park. The Water System operates the Brooks Water System through a multi-year contract. As part of the system upgrade the old elevated storage tank that was leased to Brooks was removed. After years of site investigation, a Northwest Fayette water tank site has been purchased.
