Fayette County Utilities include the following departments: Solid Waste, Stormwater and Water System
The mission of the Solid Waste Department is to provide Fayette County citizens with a reliable, cost-competitive, and environmentally compliant option for disposing and/or recycling residential solid waste and yard waste. This service is provided through an enterprise fund and thus operating costs are paid by fees collected at the County’s Transfer Station . . . Learn More.
The Fayette County Stormwater Utility purpose is to fund the repair or replacement of failing storm pipes under County roads. The Board of Commissioners decided the Stormwater Utility was the fairest method to pay for these repairs. The fees are calculated based upon the amount of rooftops, patios, driveways, etc. on each parcel of land in the unincorporated County.
The current Utility fee schedule generates approximately $600,000 per year. Although that is a substantial amount of money, it barely allows work on the most pressing projects. Stormwater Management will be an issue that County Commissioners, staff and citizens continue to deal with for many years.
Currently there are over $16 million repair and replacement stormwater projects identified within the County's stormwater inventory. . . . Learn More.
The Fayette County Water System is a part of Fayette County government, under the direction of the Fayette County Board of Commissioners, with a Water Committee acting as an advisory committee to the Board. The Fayette County Water System provides service to Tyrone, Peachtree City, Woolsey, parts of Fayetteville and Brooks and part of the unincorporated County. The Water System also serves as a backup water supply for Fayetteville that is served by their own water department. . . . Learn More.
