ESG Operations, Inc. and Augusta Utilities
In March 2011, Phinizy Center formed a partnership with Augusta Utilities and ESG Operations, Inc. This collaboration facilitates ongoing community education programs, including school field trips, public tours, scout programs, and teacher workshops. Field trip programs have been enhanced to emphasize sustainable urban watershed education and include instruction on how wastewater is treated at the JB Messerly Wastewater Treatment Plant.
