Benefits for Hattiesburg

ECONOMIC BOOST

  • The Groundworx project will be an economic boost for our community by providing jobs for the citizens of Hattiesburg during the construction period.

  • The economic boost will extend outwardly into our community by utilizing local vendors, hotel owners, restaurants, and businesses.

ODOR

  • First phase of the project is to address odor by moving the high strength wastewater from existing lagoons and to be treated mechanically outside the city limits.

MODEL FOR PROGRESS

  • Our goal is to be a "flagship" facility for Hattiesburg and a model for the state of Mississippi.
  • We will develop an on-site grassroots educational program for the youth of Hattiesburg to learn more about sustainable environmental practices and potential careers in the environmental industry.
