Serving Union County, Georgia since 1965

Notla Water Authority

Notla Water Authority (formerly Notla Water Association) was created and established in 1965 by the Notla Water Authority act (house bill no. 1534), as reported in georgia laws 1972 session, volume two pages 3385 through 3402. In the 54 years that Notla Water Authority (NWA) has existed, there have been many changes in Union County.

One of the most important changes is that residents have the assurance that a safe, quality water supply will always be available for their consumption. now, as in the past, the NWA team of dedicated employees and board members are working tirelessly to advance the effectiveness of the system and to provide clean, safe and reliable drinking water.

At the present time, the water system has over 500 miles of main distribution lines. There are three wells drawing groundwater from unconfined crystalline rock aquifers, with a combined pumping capacity of 800,000 to 1.2 million gals/day. Our total storage capacity is 2.55 million gals. The surface water treatment plant located beside Nottely Dam, withdraws water from Lake Nottely for treatment. NWA provides a reliable water supply to over 5445 commercial and residential meters. NWA now has a State certified bacteriological testing lab that will enhance the system and offer testing services to residences and surrounding counties.

Thank you for your business and continued support. We look forward to providing all of our customers with an excellent quality water supply. You may contact our office Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at (706) 745-4598 with any questions or concerns you may have.
