About WUM

Water Utility Management is Georgia’s largest private operator of community water and wastewater systems. We hold permits to operate over 200 community water systems and 20 wastewater systems in Georgia. We are headquartered in Savannah, GA, and have been since 1970. Although WUM owns nearly all the systems we operate, we do offer contract operation and consulting services for others. We offer expertise in all aspects of water and wastewater system procedures, including design, regulatory approval, regulatory compliance, construction, maintenance, and general operations.  We grow our business through the construction of community water systems and acquisition of water systems from other operators.

We work in cooperation with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, and other governmental agencies. We are dedicated to providing safe, reliable, water and wastewater service to our customers and to providing an outstanding customer experience 24/7.  WUM takes stewardship of our water resources very seriously, we work in unison with the State of Georgia to protect them and promote water conservation.
