Dublin Business Journal Staff Report

May 1, 2016 – It may not be an exciting topic, but it’s a critical one to every municipality and county in Georgia – the treatments and cost of managing wastewater. And, there is no development of new commercial or residential projects without sufficient planning to handle wastewater. 

Macon’s ESG's partnerships in Georgia have been recognized by the Georgia Association of Water Professionals (GAWP) for outstanding facility operations. The GAWP awards process, conducted by regulatory agency professionals in the state of Georgia and operators from other systems, is very rigorous and requires year-round preparation. 

As one of the nation's fastest growing full-service utility operations and public works management companies, ESG Operations provides solutions to a wide range of environmental and infrastructure projects. The company has extensive experience as both design engineers and contract utility operators.

The company’s corporate headquarters is located in Macon, with 20 other offices located across the Southeast.

"We would like to thank the GAWP and their staff for their continued support of water and wastewater utilities in Georgia. These prestigious industry awards provide validation that ESG Operations, Inc. is the foremost utility contractor in the state of Georgia. ESG Operations, Inc. has received more awards for operational excellence in Georgia and across the Southeast than all of our competitors combined.

We extend our sincere thanks and congratulations to all ESG associates who invested countless hours preparing for the facility inspections as well as assisted all of our Top Op applicants," stated ESG principals, Clay Sykes, P.E. and Dan Groselle, P.E.
