How Is the Wet Weather Affecting Augusta's Bottom Line?

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Lots of rain is good news for Augusta's lawns, but is it bad news for the water department?

We wanted to know if things were slow at the water treatment plant with all the wet weather. So, officials looked at the numbers for treating water in May and June, compared to the same time last year. The results were surprising.

"The first 11 days of June, it's less than I expected. We're only down 3 percent for the same time period last year, but we also looked at M. We were way up in what we treated, up about 17 percent so that's a surprising number to me," says Augusta Utilities Department director Tom Wiedmeier.

Wiedmeier says thanks to May, he doesn't expect to see any significant impact on his budget due to the wet weather so far this month.
