Infrastructure Projects
Water Lines in Residential Areas 
New water mains are being installed in the Skyline Drive neighborhood that will service customers of Skyline Drive, Laurel Heights Drive and Kenimer Circle. 
Water and Sewer Lines Downtown 
Now through February the City of Dahlonega will be replacing sewer and water lines in Downtown. The project area is along Park Street between Choice Ave and Warwick St. In order to minimize disruptions, these infrastructure upgrades will mostly be completed at night. Daytime sidewalk and street closures will be kept as minimal as possible. Remember, BUSINESSES WILL BE OPEN and ACCESSIBLE during these projects. 
Wastewater Treatment Plant 
Construction continues at the Dahlonega Wastewater Treatment Plant.  This is a vital part of our water and sewer system.  The project began in November of 2016 is due for completion around May of this year.  These improvements include a new filter system, new ultraviolet disinfection apparatus, new belt press and upgrades to both sequencing batch reactors.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as improvements are made to our city! Please contact City Hall for additional information on any of these projects.

Around the City
Volunteers and City employees worked together to remove Christmas trees and other decorations from downtown earlier this month.  As spring approaches we look forward to the daffodil bulbs blooming and the new spring flower barrels making their colorful debut downtown!  
A special thanks to our Public Works department for keeping sidewalks and roads clear this past week.  Crews worked around the clock to plow and spread gravel & salt on the roads so they would remain be as safe as possible during the icy conditions. 
Employee Spotlight
We are excited to welcome two new members to the City of Dahlonega staff!
