Wastewater Treatment and Social Impacts


As with all of its public works projects, City of Hattiesburg officials consistently consider and review the effects of the activities on families and their livelihoods.

We are working diligently to ensure you are included as decisions are made about the following:

  • Proper maintenance and use of the existing lagoons
  • Improved quality of the wastewater discharge and release to the Leaf River
  • Establishment of new business opportunities
  • Positive benefits of flood control
