Our team of almost 200 dedicated water professionals produces and delivers high-quality water for the residents, businesses, and industries in Athens, GA. The water is then collected to be refreshed, reclaimed, and returned to the source. Our customers rely on PUD to provide an essential service funded by water/sewer rates and new development fees, not taxes. We are stewards of these funds and responsibly reinvest in our infrastructure.
