Treatment Plant

The City of East Point Water Filter Plant provides roughly 13.9 million gallons per day (peak capacity) of treated and purified drinking water to nearly 70,000 customers (including parts of College Park and the City of Hapeville). Drinking water provided by the City of East Point comes from Sweetwater Creek in Douglas County. Water from the creek is pumped to the Ben Hill Reservoir, a man-made lake located five miles from the creek. From the lake, water is pumped to the East Point Water Treatment Plant.
