Tours and Speakers
The Amerson Plant and Javors Lucas Lake
The MWA Amerson Plant and Javors J. Lucas Lake were also constructed with public access and public education in mind. Amerson Plant tours are currently available upon request of the Plant Operations Director. Plant tours are available every day of the work week except Wednesdays and may be scheduled as early as 10:00 a.m., but no later than 2:30 p.m.
Individuals or groups are asked to call ahead to reserve a time to tour, so the Authority staff can provide a tour guide, if needed. In addition to plant tours, the reservoir and surrounding grounds have been prepared for public fishing, and there is potential for other amenities in the future.
For more information on public fishing or to schedule a plant tour at the Amerson facility, or a speaker to provide public information or a program for your group, citizens may contact the Authority at 478-464-5650.
The Lower Poplar and Rocky Creek Plants
Both the MWA Lower Poplar and Rocky Creek Water Reclamation Facilities are available for public tours. The Authority typically conducts an average of a dozen or so tours of these facilities each year, so individuals and groups have shown interest in visiting the MWA wastewater treatment facilities and learning more about the wastewater treatment process. The MWA staff at each plant welcome guests to come out for plant tours. Please call ahead so a tour guide can be provided and other accommodations may be made.
For more information or to schedule a tour of the MWA Lower Poplar wastewater treatment facility, contact the Authority's Kate Kubesheski at 478-464-5680; and for more information or to schedule a tour of the Rocky Creek plant. contact Larry Reynolds at 478-464-5655.
Amerson Water Works Park
The Macon Water Authority worked with organizers of the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail to extend and connect it to the site where the old MWA Riverside Drive Water Treatment Facility once stood. The grounds of the old treatment facility were cleared and transformed into a public park, which is known today as the Amerson Water Works Park, after being dedicated in early 2009, in honor of long-time MWA Chairman of the Board Frank C. Amerson, Jr.
