7070彩票Completed Plant Projects

The City of Valdosta Utilities Department has been working diligently on a number of wastewater improvements.

Since 1992, the city has received $179 million in Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) funds and invested in capital improvement projects (CIP). During the same timeframe, the city has expended $167 million for water/wastewater projects from SPLOST proceeds, system revenues, bonds, and Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) loans.

In November 2019, the SPLOST VIII was approved by voters and is expected to generate about $134 million, of which Valdosta will receive an estimated $65 million. Nearly 60 percent of the funding will be dedicated to wastewater projects, which is $40 million. Over the next 4 years, projects that will be funded by SPLOST, system revenues, GEFA loans, etc. include:

  • EPD Sewer Collection System Requirements
