MWA acquires B&G Water Company

The Macon Water Authority (MWA) has acquired B&G Water Company, which will result in approximately 450 new accounts from South Macon-Bibb County joining the utility’s customer base. The transaction closed on Monday March 25, for a price of $300,000. With the owners of B&G Water Company set to retire, they approached the MWA about acquiring their privately-owned water system. The first order of business for the MWA will be to connect the seven smaller water systems operated by B&G Water Company to the MWA water distribution system. The new customers then will be able to enjoy the Authority’s additional resources and capabilities, such as various billing and payment options, 24/7 on-call support, protection against the adverse effects of drought, and the expertise of 222 employees at an award-winning system. In addition, B&G customers will gain the benefit of having enhanced fire protection and subsequent lower fire insurance premiums, once water distribution infrastructure is in place for the MWA system to be extended to their neighborhoods.
