Brooks County Industrial Park: Site Plan, Grading, Drainage, Water, Sewer

Update 2024-07-04: Brooks County Industrial Park Maps 2009-03-03.

Here’s a map of the sewer system in the Brooks County Industrial Park, plus maps of the water and road systems. These maps were sent by the Brooks County Industrial Authority a couple of years ago in response to a WWALS open records request.

What this industrial park sewer system map does not show is: how does it connect to the rest of Quitman’s sewer system?

How Quitman’s sewer system works and where it is important, because Quitman has had quite a few reported sewage spills; see Quitman: Noncompliance, 9 effluent violations, 5 sewage spills, 11 monitoring violations, 1 reporting violation –GA-EPD Nov 2022 – Oct 2023. Quitman is upstream of the Withlacoochee River, and some of its former spills have quite likely travelled all the way down the Suwannee River to the Gulf of Mexico.

in the WWALS map of the Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail (WLRWT).

This 1986 map still shows the locations of the lift stations in Quitman proper, even though most of their numbers have changed; see Quitman, GA, utility maps 2022-01-03.

But where is the connection between the main Quitman sewer system and the industrial park’s sewer lines?

There are more maps below, and I’ve added some images of the locations of the two industrial park lift stations on those maps.
