The Brittany Drive Treatment Plant is located off Campbell Road and has a capacity of 5.8 MGD and withdraws from two wells and the Big Spring to be treated and distributed throughout the Eastern one-half of Gordon County. The Water Distribution System consists of approximately 830 miles of distribution mains, eight booster stations, and fifteen storage tanks.
