Water Systems

Installation

American Water Services can provide the services necessary to manage any size water system from the ground up. We have installed numerous water systems ranging from 3 service connections, to systems with well over 150 service connections. We have also performed water system maintenance in North Georgia for many older systems and made significant upgrades to make them safer and more reliable. We work very closely with developers, builders, homeowners associations and individual homeowners, to make sure that all needs are met while making sure the waters system meets all regulatory standards.

Operation

American Water Services operates numerous water systems for campgrounds, cabins, daycares, restaurants, and various other developments in addition to the community water systems we own. Many of the businesses and homeowners associations do not want to be in the water business nor do they want to deal with all the different problems that can arise from operation and water system maintenance in North Georgia. In many of these cases we have worked out agreements with these homeowners associations to take over ownership of their water system. We also contract with various associations or companies to handle all regulatory requirements such as maintaining records, water testing, and water treatment. We refill and adjust chemicals used in the water treatment systems as well as monitoring power and water meter readings for any signs that something is starting to go wrong with the water system. In many cases we can find a problem and get it fixed before an unexpected water outage occurs. Our water operators are well trained and licensed as certified water operators through the state of Georgia.

Maintenance

American Water Services can provide any needed water system maintenance in North Georgia. In addition to having state licensed water operators our staff includes state licensed pump installers, licensed electricians, a licensed backflow tester, a licensed water lab analyst and a licensed engineer (EIT). Our staff can help you diagnose and repair any problem you may be having with your water system. We also provide water system inspections and routine maintenance to ensure the systems are safe and operating properly. The inspections include things such as checking wear on electrical contacts/devices, maintaining the proper air pressure in tanks, checking water filters and chlorine pumps to be sure they are operating properly, and looking for any sanitary issues that should be addressed. The water system owner will be given a list of any issues or problems we find and the cost to repair them. Our trucks are well stocked with part so in most cases we can make the needed repairs as they are found during the inspection. Large maintenance and repair jobs are contracted to our partner company Freeman Electrical and Pump Service, Inc as they have all the machinery and equipment needed as well as additional manpower to get the work completed in a timely manner. Freeman Electrical and Pump Service and American Water Services are both operated out of the same location and are both owned by Larry Freeman. The two companies work hand in hand to make sure all work is completed in a timely and professional manner.
