The City of Hiram in Paulding County and the downtown sewer service area have been serviced by both individual home septic tank systems and a single community septic tank system for the main business area and City Hall complex downtown. Because these systems were experiencing increasing problems with providing adequate and safe sewer treatment, a consensus was reached between the City and the County to build a first phase gravity collector system with a sewer lift station that will be capable of serving the entire 425-acre sewer basin area. After studying multiple routings for the sewer force-main and lift station and preparing an approved concept, Croy prepared final design and construction plans that were approved by Georgia EPD and the Paulding County Water System. The firm also provided construction-phase services for the project.
