Macon Water Authority's (MWA) two (2) water reclamation facilities required significant upgrades and improvements to allow them to continue meeting their NPDES permits. Initial studies envision upgrades far more than the available capital to complete the projects. Progressive design-build has allowed MWA to priorities and maximize their budget and even expand the original project scope within their available budget.
