WastewaterThe City of Tifton operates one (1) Wastewater
Treatment facility. The Tifton Regional Wastewater Treatment Complex
(TRWTC) has a capacity of 8,000,000 gallons per day. The City of Tifton
has developed an Industrial Pretreatment Program in concert with the EDP
and works with industries in Tifton to control the discharge of metals
and other harmful pollutants into the treatment plant. The program goal
is to cooperate with industries to keep their raw material out of the
sewer system and utilize them as products. This helps the industrial
while preventing damage to the treatment system and the environment.
Industrial customers discharging water used for industrial processes or
large volumes of cooling water and other material into the sanitary
sewer system of the City of Tifton must obtain a permit for such
discharge. The program is administered by the Water/Wastewater
Superintendent.


Natural GasThe Natural Gas Department is responsible for
providing natural gas service to customers in the immediate Tifton area
as well as to several outlying areas in Tift County. Tifton has
approximately 3,368 residential, 401 commercial and 18 industrial
customers. The system can presently deliver natural gas at pressures up
to approximately 250 psi to accommodate the most demanding industrial
gas load. The City also operates a peak shaving facility that can
produce 100 mcf of natural gas per hour during curtailments.

Natural Gas: Comfortable. Responsible.


Water and Wastewater Plant Tours The City of Tifton Water and Wastewater plants are
open to the public for tours, and personnel are available for lectures
on environmental subjects. Persons wishing to view the plants are
requested to call the Wastewater Treatment Complex (229-386-2115) during
normal office hours to schedule a tour. Groups of up to 20 people may
be accommodated at one time if notice is given.


Stopped SewersMost sewer stoppages in individual buildings
are caused by roots or by grease in the lines owned by the property
owner. However, if water is flowing from the plumbing and no water has
been run into any fixture in the building, please call the Wastewater
Department [(229) 391-3949 during office hours (7:30 am to 5:00 pm) and
911 after hours] immediately, and personnel will be sent to check the
city mains. If the plumbing fixtures simply will not drain, the property
owner is advised to call the City of Tifton first before calling a
plumbing repair service to have their lines checked. If the City of
Tifton personnel finds the blockage is on the owner’s side, the owner is
then responsible for contacting a plumbing repair service to correct
the proble
