The Olde Atlanta Club is as genteel as its name implies. The Suwanee, GA community boats pristine golf courses, upscale homes, and plenty of Southern charm.
The community is also home to an aging wastewater treatment plant, which had an expensive problem. The plant was protected by the original roto-screen assembly, which did a reasonable job of screening away large debris, but failed to intercept gritty material. "It probably worked fine when it was new," observed Garrett Gladstone, the plant's Operator in Charge. "But it had definitely seen better days."
