ESG’s relationship with the City of Tifton began in November 2012, and at that time the scope included water and wastewater treatment. Over the past several years the City has increased
ESG’s scope to include water distribution and sewer collection systems, public works, and natural gas. ESG’s staff of 95 associates has significantly increased efficiencies within these
departments by implementing its computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) and in-sourcing approach. Within 4 years, ESG has saved the City of Tifton over $1,000,000, and produced 5 compliance and gas system of the year awards in water and wastewater treatment, and natural gas distribution.

ESG also supports the City’s educational programs and routinely provides tours and educates students on good environmental stewardship practices and the various elements of water and wastewater treatment.
