Eco-Friendly Wastewater Management
Since 1999, the Georgia Association of Water Professionals has recognized Dalton Utilities for its award-winning wastewater treatment facilities and operational excellence.
We presently operate four wastewater treatment plants and a 9,600-acre land application system, allowing us to collect and treat up to 20-25 million gallons of residential, commercial, and industrial wastewater per day. With a collection system comprising over 300 miles of piping and 50 plus lift pumping stations, we can treat up to 40+ million gallons of wastewater in any single day.
Dalton Utilities also operates a state-of-the-art sludge processing facility.
Before industrial wastewater enters our collection system, Dalton Utilities requires extensive pretreatment of the wastewater that must exceed set specific standards.
Industrial users must complete the Industrial Users’ Survey and Wastewater Discharge Permit Application and receive approval via a permit to ensure that all wastewater entering our system has been properly pretreated.

Fat, Oil, & Grease (FOG) Program
Restaurants, food service businesses, and other facilities that produce fat, oil waste, and grease can participate in Dalton Utilities’ Fat, Oil, and Grease (FOG) Program. You must apply for a permit. In accordance with federal regulations, all participating facilities must have a grease trap to protect Dalton Utilities’ collection system and prevent grease blockages, sewer backups, and overflows.
If you are new to the application or permitting process, please call with any questions you may have.
If the waste hauler is hauling grease trap waste, contact us for information regarding additional state requirements or visit the Georgia FOG Alliance.

Truck Inspections: In accordance with state regulations, trucks having grease trap pumping must be inspected annually. In order to discharge waste at Dalton Utilities, waste haulers must show proof of annual inspection.
