Carefully planned from its inception, the city was envisioned as an appealing combination of broad streets running parallel with the four points of a compass and public squares of twenty acres each. Today, in fact, Milledgeville is considered to be the only surviving example of a complete Federal period city....more

PRESS RELEASE
Date: Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017
Department: Public Works
Milledgeville Storm Recovery Efforts Continue
The City of Milledgeville Public Works Department is continuing in their storm recovery efforts throughout the city.
For the past several weeks, city crews have departed from normal curbside collection routines during storm recovery in the wake of Tropical Storm Irma.
As a result of the tropical storm, many residents have accumulated an increased amount of yard debris such as broken tree limbs, heavy brush and vegetation, as well as fallen trees. “We have been collecting any tree debris the storm has created which includes trees, tree trunks, tree branches, and any by-products of tree removal,” said Frank Baugh, Milledgeville Public Works Director. Also during this period, city residents may deposit tree debris at the city convenience center located at the end of West Thomas Street, during normal convenience center hours. “The posted hours are Monday, Wednesday & Friday 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.; however, we’re keeping it open every day Monday-Saturday as we have staff available,” stated Baugh in a previous news release.
City residents are reminded that all residential tree debris placed at curb-side will continue to be collected until close of business on Monday, Oct. 2.
After this date, city crews will return to normal curb-side collection parameters. City rules for curb-side collection of yard debris states the following:  What city will collect at curbside: o Residential refuse such as leaves, grass clippings, straw, small yard and garden clippings and other similar materials.  What city will-not collect at curbside: o Trees and by-products of tree removal or trimming services. Once again, modified tree debris collection will last only till Monday, Oct. 2. If you have any additional questions, contact the Public Works Department at 478-414-4037.
o Trees and by-products of tree removal or trimming services. Once again, modified tree debris collection will last only till Sept. 30. City residents are also reminded to heed all traffic control measures and to stay away from downed power lines. “Our city crews are fully engaged on storm recovery activities with current priority given to opening streets in tandem with Georgia Power as they complete repairs.” The Oconee River Greenway will remain closed until city crews are able to clear debris and render the trails safe for pedestrians and bicyclists. “We will issue an updated notice when the trails are again safe to use.” If you have any additional questions, contact the Public Works Department at 478-414-4037.

WATER RELATED HEALTH CONCERNS
 
Health concerns related to the quality of water the City of Milledgeville provides to its customers has surfaced recently within the community.

These concerns derive from an article that discusses contaminants found in water supplies of 30 Georgia towns or water utilities.

Findings in the article come from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) tap water database.

The EWG is a non-profit organization unaffiliated with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

According to the EWG website, the group specializes in research and advocacy of public health and makes use of public information to achieve this mission.

The most recent study that the EWG organization has done compares the presence of certain contaminants in water on a local, state, and national level.

For example, EWG’s data compares the presence of Trihalomethanes (TTHMA’s), a contaminant that forms during water treatment with chlorine and other disinfectants, in its study.

The legal limit set forth by the EPA for TTHMA’s is 80 ppb (parts per billion).

EWG’s study shows that the state average is 11.8 ppb, national average is 23.2 ppb, and Milledgeville’s is 45.7.

Regardless of the range of the percentage, all three averages do not exceed EPA’s 80 ppb set limit.

TTHMA is a chemical that EPA has established a set upper limit for in a community’s water supply.

The test results will vary from place to place, based on different variables, such as the quality of your raw water source, treatment plant capacity, and the environment you live in.

When it comes to other contaminants, EPA uses the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR) to collect data for contaminants that are suspected to be present in drinking water and do not have health-based standards set under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).

EPA’s selection of contaminants for a particular UCMR cycle is largely based on a review of the Contaminant Candidate List(CCL).

EPA reviews contaminants that have been evaluated through existing prioritization processes, including previous UCMR contaminants and the CCL.

The procedures for evaluating health effects were developed to support the ranking of contaminants for future CCLs.

According to state and federal guidelines set forth by state and federal government, The City of Milledgeville Water Department meets regulations.

 “We have always been diligent in notifying the public when there is a problem and all our CCR’s are available to the public on our website,” said City of Milledgeville Water Department official Robert Hadden.

CCR’s (Consumer Confidence Reports), also known as Annual Water Quality Reports, are available on the City’s website at www.milledgevillega.us as well as in EPD’s database on their website.

Reports listed on Milledgeville’s website date back to 2012.

The City of Milledgeville’s water laboratory continuously monitors water quality to be sure it is properly treated to EPA and EPD standards.

In addition, over 22 water samples throughout Milledgeville’s distribution system are taken randomly each month and tested, according to the 2016 CCR.
