ENSURING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP FOR OUR COMMUNITY

AUB treats the waste from both industry and residential customers across the service region. To do so, we operate two wastewater treatment plants. Located on Alford Street the Oostanaula Plant is permitted to discharge 6 million gallons per day with peaks of up to twelve million gallons per day. The other facility, known as the North Mouse Creek plant, is located on Whittaker Road. It is designed and permitted to treat 1.2 million gallons per day with peaks of up to 3 million gallons per day.
