Can we eat lunch at the facility?

Neither the Drinking Water Treatment Plant nor Water Reclamation Facility is equipped to handle large groups for lunch. However, both facilities are only a short drive to Athens-Clarke County parks offering picnic areas. Memorial Park is a good choice for those visiting the Drinking Water Treatment Plant. Please contact 706-613-3580 to reserve a pavilion. For those who tour the Water Reclamation Facility, Southeast Clarke Park's World of Wonder Playground offers a conveniently located pavilion for groups to eat. Please contact 706-613-3871. Both parks request at least two weeks advance notice if you plan to bring a large group for lunch.
