The Lamar County Water and Sewer Authority (LCWSA) was created in 1989 by an act of the Georgia General Assembly known as Act No. 81. In July 2000 the Lamar County Board of Commissioners activated the LCWSA by appointing a five member board and charged these members with the planning and execution of developing a county water system, which is to provide potable water and sewer service to the unincorporated areas of Lamar County.
LCWSA has successfully negotiated water purchase agreements to purchase potable water from the City of Barnesville, City of Milner, City of Griffin and Butts County et al., Water and Sewer Authority for distribution in Lamar County. Combined, these agreements allow the LCWSA to purchase up to 1.5 million gallons per day (MGD) and distribute throughout the unincorporated areas of Lamar County. Additionally, based on the projected population and customer growth, the current maximum allowable supply will be adequate for the next twenty-five (25) years.
LCWSA recognizes the need of a county sewer system and are researching the feasibility of developing a public sewer system. However, no further information is available at the time.
