Augusta wins water-sewer contract for Fort Gordon

Augusta-Richmond County was awarded a contract for nearly $37 million this week to provide drinking water and wastewater treatment services to Fort Gordon, according to the U.S. Defense Department.

The contract, announced Tuesday, is to be administered by the U.S. Army Contracting Command with a specified completion date of Sept. 30, 2022.

Various upgrades have been under way since 2008, when a $290 million, 50-year contract was approved to gradually link Fort Gordon to Augusta’s freshwater and wastewater treatment systems.

The improvements, which will include 130 miles of water and sewer pipes, 540 fire hydrants and 1,500 sewage manholes, are funded by the federal government.
