The F. Wayne Hill Water Resources Centre is the world’s largest membrane and ozone facility. The facility provides wastewater treatment for over 50% of Gwinnett County’s population. Advanced technologies are used to treat wastewater to near drinking water standards so it can be returned to Lake Lanier. Water at the F. Wayne Hill Water Resource Center (WRC) goes through a rigorous 11-step process that returns it to an almost pristine state before sending it to discharge points in the Chattahoochee River which is a source of drinking water for downstream users and Lake Lanier. Reclaiming water and returning it to Lake Lanier is an important element of sustainable water management. Lake Lanier, the County’s sole source of drinking water.
