CWS Selected for Garden City, GA Project

ClearWater Solutions, LLC is excited to announce that the company has been selected to provide operations, maintenance, and management services for the City of Garden City, Georgia under a 2-year, $700,000/year contract (with the option for two additional one-year renewals). CWS has worked on a temporary basis to provide such services for the City’s water and wastewater facilities since July 2017 when the City’s plant manager retired.  “In the five months in which our firm has been on the job, we have not only successfully operated and managed the wastewater plant, but have also monitored the lift stations and the water wells. This familiarity and understanding of the City’s systems will provide a significant advantage in the project start-up pro­cess, as well as an understanding of the needs of the system”, said CWS President, Rick Ailiff.  The project also involves the understanding of oper­ating systems under the Coastal Georgia Water and Waste­water Permitting Plan for Managing Salt Water Intrusion, as well the Sub-region 1 Red Zone Water Management Plan. Our team’s experience includes the City of Garden City, as well as the City of Port Wentworth where we currently serve as Operator of Record – both areas located in the Red Zone.

Larry Arnett, the CWS Project Manager for Garden City, was relocated during the temporary assignment and will be assigned permanently in this position.  Larry holds a Georgia Class II Water / Class I Wastewater Operator certification, along with 15 years of project management experience.  Larry’s team will be supported by both CWS and GMC professionals.

The City of Garden City is located about 10 miles from Savannah in Chatham County, Georgia.  The System currently serves an approximate 14.75 square mile area containing an estimated population of 8,770 and has 3,100 water and sewer customers.

With your oversight, the City’s water and sewer operations have greatly improved. CWS clearly understands the needs of the City, its operations, and our desire to provide a first-class interaction with the citizens of Fayetteville. Your organized approach and effective communication allow for key decision-making in providing cost-effective solutions required on all water and sewer-related projects. I greatly appreciate your team’s attention to detail and quality and look forward to our continued partnership.

The knowledge, dedication and professionalism of the Clearwater Solutions personnel has turned our plant operations around completely since they were hired by the City. They have taken our wastewater treatment plant from chronic monthly violations to violation free for the past several months! It truly feels like a partnership instead of just another contracted service.


CWS, Mark Pressgrove, and his team of professionals always go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to the needs of the Town of Walls’ sewer system and our residents. CWS is always quick in response to our sewer issues and determining the problem in a swift manner saving the Town time and money. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.


ClearWater Solutions, LLC has gone above and beyond in operating and maintenance of the Hall County sewer system of 0.75 MGD plant, 19 pump stations and over 350,000 LF of mains. They have provided a high quality of customer service to both Hall County staff and its citizens. I strongly recommend them for anyone who’s looking to hire an outstanding O&M company.
