The Snapfinger Creek Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility is located in southern DeKalb County. The facility became operational in 1963, and the original two million gallons per day (MGD) wastewater treatment plant was the second DeKalb County owned and operated wastewater treatment facility.

The present Snapfinger Creek Facility was completed in 1983 and meets the requirements of the Clean Water Act. The facility is designed to use chemical additives to complying with new nutrient permit requirements. The plant is currently designed to treat 36 MGD of flow.

The Snapfinger Creek Facility also monitors, operates, and maintains remote lift stations and metering stations located throughout the DeKalb County sanitary sewer collection system. In addition, the facility is the only authorized septic tank disposal operation in the county.

Pole Bridge Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility

The Pole Bridge Creek Advanced Secondary Wastewater Treatment Facility is located in southeast DeKalb County. This facility was originally constructed in 1973 as a small three million gallon per day secondary treatment facility. In 1990, the facility was upgraded to 20 million gallons per day with the addition of a Biosolids Reuse program. The facility operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The Pole Bridge Creek facility primarily treats waste generated in the Lithonia area along with some waste generated in Gwinnett County. The treated wastewater meets state and Federal requirements before being discharged into the South River.
