Eufaula Public Works Authority

View all


The Eufaula Public Works Authority (Authority) located in McIntosh County serves 1,113 sewer customers and 1,773 water customers. According to the 2010 U.S Census the population was 2,813. The Authority received 100% principal forgiveness for planning and design.

The Authority’s current treatment process is an activated sludge/extended aeration treatment system. The design average daily flow is 1.0 MGD, and the receiving waterbody is Eufaula Lake which is listed on the 303(d) list for turbidity, lead and enterococcus.

The Authority’s wastewater collection system consists of 120,000 linear feet of gravity sewer lines, three (3) lift stations, and 350 manholes. A large portion of the existing wastewater collections lines consist of clay sewer pipe near or past their design life. Many of the manholes are of brick construction which is no longer allowed by the DEQ Standard Regulations.

To correct this issue the Authority is using the Phase I planning and design funds to conduct a sewer analysis, mapping, modeling, evaluation recommendation, and a capital improvement report.
