MANAGEMENT OF DECENTRALIZED SYSTEMS THE MANY FACES OF PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS FOR GROWING COMMUNITIES
Abstract:Many parts of Georgia are experiencing growth in advance of typical public wastewater infrastructure being in place. Communities are faced with decisions about restricting growth, large public investments, individual on-site systems, and private participation. Immediate solutions to immediate problems are not always consistent with long-term plans or watershed/regional priorities – even when these plans and priorities are not fully developed. This paper presents case studies from a regional planning study, a large urban growing community (Fulton County), and a smaller outlying county (Bartow County). These case studies will show real world solutions and how they address the multiple issues facing communities during growth. A key element in implementing wastewater management plans is money. This paper will address the sources and uses of money for the management options discussed.
