Student leaders visit water treatment plant at Javors Lucas Lake

On March 8, a group of Macon-Bibb student leaders from the Georgia Civic Awareness Program for Students (GCAPS) rode out to Javors Lucas Lake to learn about the county’s 5.8 billion gallon water supply, and how it gets from the tanks to their taps. 

McCoy told the group, “We get the water from the Ocmulgee River, and if we’re not able to get water for over 5 months, we still have a water supply here in Macon, unlike some water systems in Georgia which have a 3-day supply,” Gary McCoy, Water Operations Director with the Macon Water Authority, told the group.
