Mayors sign sewer agreement

BRASELTON - Mayors of the town of Braselton and the city of Oakwood signed a sewer service partnership agreement Thursday.

According to the agreement, Oakwood will have the authority to purchase sewer treatment capacity from the Braselton Water Reclamation Facility as it undergoes future capacity upgrades.

Currently built to process 1.27 millions of sewage per day, the design, engineering and permitting is under way to increase its capacity to 2.9 million gallons per day. Oakwood's future purchases will be coordinated by the two governments after the plant expansion projects are completed by Braselton.

The agreement confirms that Oakwood will pay a proportional share of the cost associated with the capacity it needs during future plant expansions. It will also take an equal amount of reuse water as capacity received. Oakwood will install, own and operate its infrastructure to the connecting point with the Braselton system.
