Savannah Water Quality: Then & Now
General James Oglethorpe and 120 passengers on the ship “Anne” landed on a bluff along the Savannah River in 1733. Like the local Native Americans, these early settlers drew their drinking water from the abundant river source.
In 1866, city planners drilled Savannah’s first artesian well in Greene Square and distributed the water to the growing population through cast iron pipes. However, the artesian wells alone could not keep up with the demand, so they resumed drawing water from the Savannah River in addition to the artesian well water.
A U.S. Geological Survey from 1940 showed that the aquifer’s water level was decreasing. So, Savannah started to pull water from Abercorn Creek, a tributary of the Savannah River. The newly built Industrial and Domestic (I & D) Water Treatment Plant filtered Savannah drinking water, providing 35 million gallons a day. Since the 1940s, the I & D Water Treatment Plant has been upgraded and can hold 75 million gallons of water a day.
Today, Savannah Water Resources serves more than 215,000 customers in and around Chatham County. The city blends Floridan aquifer and Abercorn Creek water, producing 6,189 million gallons of groundwater and 154 million gallons of surface water. According to a recent Savannah Water Quality report, water is disinfected with chlorine and balanced with ammonia. Lime and phosphate are also added to combat corrosiveness.
Like many older cities, Savannah has cast iron pipes, prone to corrosion and biofilm contamination. Chemical reactions create clusters of deterioration and bacteria along the inside of the pipe, resulting in a “rotten egg” taste and smell. In addition, rising sea levels cause high levels of saltwater intrusion into the aquifer, which can result in salty-tasting drinking water.
