The City of Griffin has been designated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division to supply finished drinking water regionally to 80,000 people. It is our commitment to provide the finest drinking water possible and deliver superior service to our customers at a reasonable cost. Our wastewater management program mission consists of the collection and treatment of wastewater through the development of CMOM (Capacity, Management, Operations and Maintenance Program.) The goals of the Utility are to provide an overall quality program for our citizens.
The City of Griffin has been treating and distributing finished water since the 1890's. The system has two withdrawal points on the Upper Flint River, one just north of the City of Griffin servicing Harry Simmons Water Treatment Plant and Heads Creek Reservoir and a second one north of Molena servicing Still Branch Reservoir.
