WAYCROSS, Ga. -- The Southeast Health Department in Georgia is mapping residential septic tanks and drinking water wells near bodies of water owned by the State of Georgia.
According to a release from SEHD, county health department officials from Brantley, Charlton and Wayne counties will be in local neighborhoods to locate the wells and septic tanks using GPS.
The survey will continue form now until March.
"Some residents have been concerned, so we want to make them aware that our employees are doing this project, in case they see someone unfamiliar walking or driving around their neighborhood," said Roger Naylor, SEHD Public Relations Director. "All employees will have a proper ID with them at all times, so you can know who they are and what they are doing."
Once complete the information will assist county health departments with planning for future needs in growing communities.
For any additional information residents can contact their local county health department environmental health manager or Angela Bray, Southern Georgia Regional Commission, at 229.333.5277 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
