The Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water & Sewer Commission (BGJWSC) provides water and wastewater services to Glynn County, Georgia, which has a population of approximately 82,000 people. Glynn County, on the Atlantic coast south of the Altamaha River, is one of Georgia’s original eight counties and was founded in 1777. The City of Brunswick serves as the county seat. Glynn County’s coastal location, with beautiful beaches on four coastal islands, including well known Jekyll, St. Simons and Sea Islands, is a recreational haven for residents and visitors. To meet the growing need for high-quality drinking water, BGJWSC operates 14 water production facilities. Water is primarily sourced from the Upper Floridian Aquifer and distributed through more than 450 miles of water mains, 9 elevated storage tanks and 11 ground storage tanks to nearly all of Brunswick and a third of the rest of the county. Wastewater is collected by over 285 miles of gravity collection lines and transported by 90 miles of force mains and nearly 200 lift stations to 3 treatment facilities. Through its comprehensive asset management program, the BGJWSC continually monitors and upgrades these systems to maintain compliance, ensure quality service and be good stewards of the beautiful coastal environment.
