Before winter temperatures arrive in full force, Macon Water Authority customers should weatherize their homes to protect water lines and sprinkler systems from freezing and bursting. Some helpful hints include wrapping your pipes with insulation and draining your sprinkler system and garden hoses completely. A thorough list and insights on weatherization tips are available on the Winterization Tips Education page of our website, accessible via the "Learn More" link below. Learn More »

If the Holiday Season is a time of giving, MWA customers may want to consider participating in our Water Assistance Program. Your monthly bill allows you the opportunity to make a contribution to the Macon Water Authority’s Water Assistance Program to help fellow customers with utility bill payments. You can make a one-time or monthly contribution, and even vary the amount of your donation. Look for the area on your payment stub that designates contribution amounts and consider making a donation to spread Holiday Cheer!

Nothing is better than a home-cooked meal during the holidays. However, the fats, oils, and grease (or FOG) from home cooking should not be put down the sink. Protect your plumbing and our sewer system by helping us in the fight against FOG! First, wipe plates clean prior to washing in the sink or in the dishwater. Also, let grease cool before pouring it into a sealed container to throw away. We have free, reusable grease can covers at our Second Street Headquarters that can help, so stop by and pick up yours today! For more information on Grease Education, check out the "Learn More" link to that page of our website. Learn More »

Since we sometimes experience tropical storms, hurricanes, and winter snow and ice in Georgia, please consider putting together a Family Emergency Plan and Basic Ready Kit to make sure your family is prepared for emergencies and natural disasters. Before an emergency happens, sit down with your family and decide how you will get in contact with each other, where you should go, and what you will do in the case of emergency. Keep a copy of your plan in your emergency Basic Ready Kit or other safe place everyone can access. Family Emergency Plans include a neighborhood meeting place, and out-of-neighborhood meeting place, and an out-of-town meeting place. Make sure you have contact information for all members of the family, including their respective names, date of birth, social security number, and important medical information. In addition, write down where each family members spends the majority of their time, especially the location and contact information of places of work and schools. As for a Basic Ready Kit, store one gallon of drinking water per person per day, for at least a three-day supply. Also store a can opener and non-perishable food for that many days as well. Additional items may include a radio; flash lights with extra batteries; a first aid kit; a whistle to signal for help; a face mask for filtering contaminated air; plastic sheeting or tarps and duct tape for shelter repairs; moist wipes, garbage bags and plastic bags for hygiene; tools or at least a wrench and pliers to turn off utilities, and local maps. More information on emergency preparedness is available online at or on the Ready Georgia website at Learn More »
