Wastewater collections and treatment are the two divisional services performed by the city’s Wastewater Service Group.
Wastewater from domestic, industrial, and commercial users is collected by gravity flow at collection points known as sewage lift stations. The lift station pumps the sewage to an elevation high enough to allow gravity flow to once again be established. The final lift station pumps the sewage directly to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Treatment is provided by a 12 million gallon per day Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) Biological Treatment Plant. The plant provides service for the City of Andrews, the western portion of Georgetown County and The city of Georgetown. Solids separated from the Wastewater are processed by Georgetown County into compost that is available for public purchase.
