Go Behind the Tap to Learn More About Clayton County’s Drinking Water at Open House May 5

Apr 22, 2018 by Suzanne Brown


The Clayton County Water Authority (CCWA) kicks off Drinking Water Week with an Open House at the Terry R. Hicks Water Production Plant on Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) and water community partners across North America celebrate 2018 Drinking Water Week May 6- 12 to recognize the vital role water plays in our daily lives.

Staff at the award-winning Hicks Plant, which is located at 1693 Freeman Road in Jonesboro, will provide behind the tap tours of the facility every 30 minutes starting at 10:30 a.m. to show customers how Clayton County’s drinking water is produced and tested. Along with tours, staff will be on hand to share information on CCWA’s Newman Wetlands Center, public recreation areas and the importance of finding and fixing leaks. CCWA will also have plenty of tasty tap water for visitors to enjoy.

“We want to give customers the opportunity to see for themselves what takes place behind the tap and meet the people who are responsible for ensuring they have safe, high quality drinking water,” says Kendra Stanciel, CCWA water production manager.

Along with the open house, staff will provide information and answer questions about water quality at its HQ customer service location at 1600 Battle Creek Road in Morrow May 7, 8 and 10 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Staff will also have CCWA’s Tap on the Go portable water tank available on the same days for customers to enjoy ice cold tap water.
